A lovely evening yesterday at the Fantastic Fiction Reading Series at the KGB Bar. It's always a pleasure seeing Jack Ketchum, and doubly so hearing him read, but it was also quite grand to see scottedelman again. I hadn't seen him since the World Horror Convention in Utah in 2008, when we were both up for the Bram Stoker Award in the same category. Luckily, the urge to brawl for the award was gone and we didn't so much as throw a punch at each other this time! Wonderful catching up with maryrobinette too, who was back in town on business.
The above picture is courtesy of Ellen Datlow, who doesn't just co-run the reading series but also acts as official photographer (those who've been there before are sure to be familiar with her camera flash!). Behind me is my friend and fellow horror author Adam Pepper, who here seems to be preparing to bite me on the back of the neck. Also, I desperately need a haircut.
