SF in SF Presents a Mysterious Author Reading

Like detective novels? Good! This Saturday, June 12th, Science Fiction in San Francisco welcomes mystery authors Deborah Grabien and Seanan McGuire to the Variety Preview Room.

From SF in SF:

Deborah Grabien is the author of the Kinkaid Chronicles series. Her detective, J.P. Kinkaid, is the aging guitarist with a hugely successful rock band. Kinkaid suffers from multiple sclerosis, a condition he shares with his creator whose personal experience informs her writing. Grabien has also written a number of supernatural thrillers based on old ballads. Her latest novel, Dark’s Tale, is a middle grade book about a young cat who is abandoned in Golden Gate Park and has to fend for himself.

Seanan McGuire’s detective is even more unusual. October Daye is a fairy changeling. The criminals she chases down often have more than a few tricks up their sleeves. McGuire burst onto the scene last year with Rosemary and Rue, a book that won her a place on the ballot for the prestigious John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. A second October Daye novel, A Local Habitation, is now available, with An Artificial Night coming soon. Meanwhile, masquerading as Mira Grant, McGuire has produced FEED, a hard-bitten political thriller set in the midst of a zombie apocalypse.
