I’m happy to say Ann VanderMeer and I will be in New York City next week to celebrate the release of our Big Book of Science Fiction from Vintage. This is our largest anthology yet–over 1,200 pages covering a century of science fiction. Over 800,000 words of fiction–105 stories. The anthology has already received starred reviews from all four major library journals.
You can join us in either Manhattan or Brooklyn–or both!–with two very different events that promise to be equally exciting!
Powerhouse Arena, Brooklyn, 7pm July 13, Wed. – Ann and Jeff VanderMeer in conversation with Buzzfeed’s Isaac Fitzgerald. Details here. Discussion and Q&A as well as Ann and Jeff in a “read-off” trying to one-up each other with the strangest sentences from a century of science fiction.
McNally Jackson, Manhattan, 7pm July 14, Thurs. – A lively discussion of science fiction, to celebrate the release of The Big Book of Science Fiction (Vintage) edited by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer. Panelists include the multiple-award-winning Ted Chiang, Hugo Award winner and translator John Chu, Hugo Award winner Ann VanderMeer, Washington Post SF critic Nancy Hightower, and Electric Literature’s Halimah Marcus. Nebula Award winner Jeff VanderMeer will moderate. Details here.
Both events will include Q&A and book signing. Please join us for what promise to be very fun events.
