Book Reviews, Attack the Block, and Authors Ryan Boudinot and Ayize Jama-Everett

Happy Monday! SF in SF has some awesome authors speaking this week, but I'm going to start off by sharing some reviews.

First, Fresh Fiction takes a look at Charles de Lint's Promises to Keep:

"A clear and stunning view revealing the secrets of Newford." Nice! Read the rest of the review here.

Functional Nerds loves Kafkaesque! They say "It's an extremely rich and potent collection..." and you can read the rest of the review here.

SF in SF movie night kicks off a new year this Thursday with Attack the Block, a fast, funny, and gritty tale of aliens attacking the slums of South London. Did you miss this one when it came out in theaters? (I didn't, and it was AWESOME) Well, now's your chance to see it.

Doors and cash bar (proceeds go to Variety Children's Charity) open at 6PM, movie starts at 7. And there's free popcorn!

All SF in SF events take place at:
The Variety Preview Room Theatre
The Hobart Bldg., 1st Floor — entrance next to Citbank on Market St.
582 Market Street @ 2nd and Montgomery
San Francisco, CA 94104

Finally, SF in SF will be hosting Ryan Boudinot and Ayize Jama-Everett this Saturday the 28th! Both are first timers at SF in SF, so this will be an extra fun event.

Ryan Boudinot is the author of Blueprints of the Afterlife and The Littlest Hitler a Publishers Weekly Book of the Year. You can read his column at The Rumpus over here.

Ayize Jama-Everett is the author of the debut novel The Liminal People. Check out his website to learn more about this terrific new author.

Once again, doors and bar open at 6, event begins at 7. Check above for the address.
