SF in SF

Screen Shot 2019-04-09 at 12.44.56 PMJoin us this Sunday, June 9th, for a lively evening in celebration of Tales for the Camp Fire: A Charity Anthology Benefiting Wildfire Relief.
Doors and bar open at 6:00PM
Event begins at 6:30PM
Authors Nancy Etchemendy and E.M. Markoff join editor Loren Rhoads to read and discuss their new book, which is raising money for survivors of last year’s devastating wildfire in Butte County, California.


Nancy Etchemendy’s novels, short fiction, and poetry have appeared regularly for the past 40 years, both in the US and abroad. Her work has earned a number of awards, including three Bram Stoker Awards and an International Horror Guild Award. Cat in Glass and Other Tales of the Unnatural, her collection of short dark fantasy, was named an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. She lives and works in Northern California, where she leads a somewhat schizophrenic life, alternating between unkempt, introverted writer/photographer/gardener and gracious (she prays) wife of an eminent Stanford professor.

Award-winning Latinx author E.M. Markoff writes stories about damaged heroes and imperfect villains. Her novels include To Nurture & Kill and The Deadbringer, which Booklist described as “A fantastic action-adventure, tinged with Mexican folklore, that will appeal to fans of A Game of Thrones.

Loren Rhoads served as editor for Bram Stoker Award-nominated Morbid Curiosity magazine as well as the books The Haunted Mansion Project: Year Two, Death’s Garden: Relationship with Cemeteries, and Morbid Curiosity Cures the Blues: True Tales of the Unsavory, Unwise, Unorthodox, and Unusual. Her short stories have appeared in Best New Horror #27, Strange California, Sins of the Sirens: Fourteen Tales of Dark Desire, Fright Mare: Women Write Horror, and most recently in Weirdbook, Occult Detective Quarterly, and Space & Time.
