You may recall that in January, we featured readers from the writer's group known as The Eighth of February, but decided at the last minute to spread out the seven writers over two evenings. Here then, is part two, hosted and guest-curated by Bill Shunn.
The 8TH OF FEBRUARY GROUP is a private writing workshop specializing in science fiction and fantasy which meets monthly in Manhattan. It is named for Jules Verne, the genre pioneer who was born on that date in 1828. The workshop was founded by Robert J. Howe and William Shunn, both 1985 graduates of the Clarion Workshop, and has just celebrated its first anniversary.
BARBARA KRASNOFF's stories have appeared in the magazines Amazing Stories, Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet, and Descant, and in the anthologies Memories & Visions: Women's Fantasy and Science Fiction and Such a Pretty Face. Most recently, her story "Hearts and Minds" appeared in the December issue of Weird Tales.
WILLIAM SHUNN is co-founder of the 8th of February Group. His short fiction has appeared in Salon, F&SF, Science Fiction Age, Realms of Fantasy, Electric Velocipede, Vanshing Acts, and elsewhere. He was nominated for the Nebula Award in 2002 and honored by the Association for Mormon Letters in 2004. His "Ice Queen" is cover story for the current issue of the Canadian fiction magazine Storyteller.
IAN RANDAL STROCK is a writer and editor. Most of his fiction has appeared in Analog (for which he's won two AnLab Awards), with his nonfiction appearing everywhere from Absolute Magnitude to Games to the New York Times. As an editor, he served six years as associate editor of Analog and Asimov's, and founded and published Artemis Magazine. He is currently News Editor of Chronicle: SF, Fantasy, & Horror's Monthly Trade Journal.
As always, admission is free, but we suggest a $5 donation.
