Cool science fiction detritus raffle for KGB reading series

Mary sez,

To raise money for the KGB Fantastic Fiction reading series, the hosts (Ellen Datlow and Matt Kressel) are holding a raffle. The prizes are unbelievable. Original art from Thomas Canty, Neil Gaiman's keyboard (autographed), short story critiques by Ellen Datlow, Gardner Dozois… The list goes on and on. Seriously, one of the items is your own wormhole.

Between July 14th and July 28th, you can buy raffle tickets for only a dollar each. 1 buck. That's nothing. And you can buy as many as you want.

If you aren't familiar with the KGB Fantastic Fiction reading series, Terry Bisson and Alice K. Turner started the series in the late 1990s, attempting to bring together mainstream writers with writers of speculative fiction in order to show, in Alice Turner's words, "that at a certain level they were plowing exactly the same field." In the spring of 2000 Ellen Datlow took over for Alice K. Turner and in August 2002 Gavin J. Grant, publisher of Small Beer Press, stepped in for Bisson when he moved to California. Matthew Kressel stepped in for Gavin in April of 2008.

The reading series features luminaries and up-and-comers in speculative fiction. Admission is always free.


(Thanks, Mary!)
