Baltimore Comic Con!


I’m off to Baltimore Comic Con this Friday, September 22-Sunday, September 24, where I will be on a panel called “How I Broke Into Comics,” moderated by DC publisher Dan DiDio. I’ll also be at table 2502, so if you’re at the con, come on by and ask me about Mystik U, Cadaver & Queen, Future Echoes and Liminal Comics. And yes, you can also ask me Neil Norse Gods questions.


I’m very excited to be attending MoCCA in Manhattan this year (April 1 and 2). I’ll be wearing my editorial hat and representing Liminal Comics, along with my amazing assistant editor Maggie Vicknair. Come check out our soon-to-be-released first comic, Future Echoes by Al Davison and Yen Quach.

Here’s the link to the Liminal website:

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»
