Pyr author Michael Blumlein is appearing in the upcoming SF in SF reading series. I wish I still lived in San Francisco so I could attend events like this! From their press release:
SF in SF
A monthly Science Fiction
author reading series
and MICHAEL CADNUM
MICHAEL BLUMLEIN, M.D. is the author of X,Y (now a minor motion picture), THE BRAINS OF RATS, and most recently THE HEALER, headlining Pyr's prestigious new SF list. A frequent Bram Stoker (horror) and World Fantasy Award nominee, Blumlein lives in San Francisco where he both practices and teaches medicine at the University of California.
"The Healer [is a] haunting literary SF novel...original, surreal and extraordinary!"
MICHAEL CADNUM has been a National Book Award Finalist and a Fellow of the National Endowment for the Arts. He was twice a finalist for the Mystery Writers of America Edgar Award as well as a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award. CAN'T CATCH ME, a collection of his short stories, has just been released by Tachyon. He lives in Albany, CA.
"Cadnum knocks us off our platitudes and sends us sliding elsewhere...and we are smoothly swept into a new field of perception." --Ted Kooser, US Poet Laureate
