On Monday, February 7, I will be hosting an evening of short readings by members of my writing workshop, at the Melville Gallery of the South Street Seaport Museum in Manhattan. The event is part of the New York Review of Science Fiction Reading Series and is open to the public. A donation of $5 is suggested. Please come!
(For maximum confusion, my writing group is named the 8th of February Group. But please don't show up for the reading on that date!)

Howe and William Shunn, both 1985 graduates of the Clarion Workshop, and has just celebrated its first anniversary.
