SF in SF author night: John Shirley and Mira Grant/Seanan McGuire

We have got two excellent guests for tomorrow night's SF in SF author event, so if you're in the Bay Area, you won't want to miss this one.

John Shirley has written in multitude of styles and genres. You're probably already a fan, even if you don't realize it. He's a horror writer, a science fiction writer, a lyricist, and his novel City Come a Walkin' was a cornerstone of the cyberpunk movement. He was a writer for The Crow, Deep Space Nine, and Batman: Beyond. Some of his latest titles are The Other End, Wet Bones, and Bioshock: Rapture.

Mira Grant, a founding member of the Horror Movie Sleep-Away Survival Camp, is a John W. Campbell Award winner and Philip K. Dick Award finalist. Her zombie novel Feed landed on several Year's Best lists. Her latest book is Deadline, book two in the Newsflesh series.

You might also know Mira as Seanan McGuire, author of the October Daye series starting with Rosemary and Rue.
