If you’ve been paying attention to our daily link posts over the past several years, you will recognize the Fantastic Fiction at KGB Readings. This awesome monthly event is a series of author readings held at the KGB Bar in New York City and organized by Ellen Datlow and Matthew Kressel. Each event features two writers reading their work — not only a great way to sample their work, but also a chance to meet them in person.
Up until this week, you had to be in or around New York City at the time of the readings to enjoy them.
Not any more!
The Fantastic Fiction at KGB website just added an audio page for podcast recordings of the monthly readings, thanks to the efforts of Gordon Linzner, Sandra Martinez, and Rajan Khanna (who do the production and post-production work). They’ve already posted the audio from the last four readings to get you started, and will post new episodes every month. So far they’ve posted readings by:
- Laird Barron & Paul Tremblay (from May 15th)
- Paul Witcover & Eileen Gunn (from June 18th)
- Victor LaValle & Sofia Samatar (from July 16th)
- Karen Heuler & Veronica Schanoes (from August 20th)
I highly recommend you check out these podcasts. Ellen and Matt consistently assemble top talent for fans to enjoy. If you’re fortunate enough to be in the area when they are held, you’ll be able to rub elbows with even more top talent located in the audience.
