Robert Sheckley Fans, Rejoice!

Exciting news:

Fans of Science Fiction writer Robert Sheckley, rejoice! This Monday, April 7, at 6:30 pm, the New York Times Review of Science Fiction Readings is holding a tribute to the satirical, philosophical author who inspired Douglas Adams. The event is being held at the Soho Gallery for Digital Art, on 138 Sullivan Street in New York City.

Alisa Kwitney (Sheckley) will be reading the existential short story Warm, along with Nebula Award Winning author Michael Swanwick. A panel afterward will feature award winning SF editor Ellen Datlow, author and Temporary Culture publisher Henry Wessells, and psychotherapist and journalist Ziva Kwitney, who was married to Sheckley during his beatnik Greenwich Village phase and his first expat in Majorca phase.

The event is being organized by Jim Freund, host of the Pacifica Radio show Hour of the Wolf and curator of the New York Review of Science Fiction Reading Series. For more information click hereĀ»
