It's true I'll be reading from my book YES TRESPASSING on October 4, 2017 at one of NYC's coolest, thank-god-it's-still-there bars, KGB, but you should really come to hear scribes John F.D. Taff, John C. Foster and J. Daniel Stone, each one of them alone worth the price of admission even if it was 6x higher (It's free, but still you get my point, it being hard to not feel a rapier-like object thrust into your epidermis. You don't say "Do you get my spongy nub?" now do you. That would be silly business).
Visit KGB's official site for more or less on this event and a ton of other great readings and things they have calendared:

(Hey, John lives in Brooklyn? So do I! Maybe we'll become friends, that would be neat. Anyway he is definitely a praiseworthy colleague, even if he winds up hating my guts--which I would totally understand.)
J. Daniel Stone writes from NYC where he was born and raised. He is the author of the urban horror novels The Absence of Light and Blood Kiss, and the forthcoming collection of dark short stories Lovebites & Razorlines. He writes under a pseudonym to keep the wolves at bay.Follow him on that Evil Virtual Trumpeting (Horn-Tooter?) they call "Twitter" at Twitter@SolitarySpiral.
(Me and Stone are buds already, so that's kind of boring, chances of dramatic conflict are null. But I can't wait to see him again, it's been too long!)
John F.D. Taff is the Stoker Award-Nominated author of The End of All Beginnings, which Jack Ketchum called "the best novella collection I've read in years." His short story collection Little Deaths was named the best horror fiction collection of 2012 by HorrorTalk. His has made it onto the Tangent Online Annual Recommended Reading List the last three years running. His novles The Bell Witch and Kill-Off were recently republished by Grey Matter Press, which also released his new fiction collection, Little Black Spots.

(John? Where do I start? I love him. I mean that. And this reading event will be the first time we meet, so how cool is that? Like you give a president's head.)
