Tuesday Funk is proud and excited that the 70th World Science Fiction Convention will be coming to Chicago from August 30 to September 3rd, 2012!

It so happens that our September reading will take place Tuesday, September 4th, 2012, the day after Worldcon ends. We plan to put on an evening of great science fiction readings that night—a veritable Science Fiction Spectacular—with a group of terrific science fiction and fantasy writers we wouldn't normally be able to bring together in Chicago.

We're very pleased to announce our stellar September 4th lineup of Daryl Gregory, Rae Carson, Rajan Khanna, Adam Rakunas, and Gregory A. Wilson! We look forward to telling you much more about these amazing writers as the convention draws closer.

And whether you're a science fiction fan or just a lover of great writing, mark September 4th on your calendar. It's going to be a terrific evening!
