First Goal Met! Can You Help Us Reach Our Stretch Goals?

Thanks to the amazing support from the community, we've reached $4500, our minimal funding goal. This amount will let us run for three more years. While three years is great, we would love to be able to fund the series for four ($6000), five ($7500) or even six more years ($9000) without having to return to the community for help. Will you help keep fantastic literature in the arts strong for years to come and help us reach our Stretch Goals? Any donation, no matter how small, is appreciated!

Fantastic Fiction Needs Your Help

Fantastic Fiction at KGB is a monthly reading series hosted by Ellen Datlow and Matthew Kressel. We are looking to fund several more years of our popular Manhattan-based reading series and will be holding a Kickstarter fundraiser from May 17th through June 14th, 2017. We need to raise a minimum of $4500, which will keep us funded for three more years.

About

Fantastic Fiction at KGB is a monthly reading series hosted by Ellen Datlow and Matthew Kressel. It is held on the third Wednesday of every month at the famous KGB Bar in Manhattan. The reading series features luminaries and up-and-comers in speculative fiction. Admission is always free. The series brings together the greater New York community of writers, editors publishers, agents and fans into one location each month. We also publish a monthly podcast audio of the readings so people who cannot attend the physical event can still enjoy the readings. Additionally, we sell the authors' books at the events (currently through Word Bookstore). Fantastic Fiction is a great place to hear and meet talented new and veteran authors, as well as make valuable connections and meet new friends.

Who We Are

The series is hosted by veteran editor Ellen Datlow and award-nominated author Matthew Kressel. 

Ellen Datlow has been editing science fiction, fantasy, and horror short fiction for over thirty-five years as fiction editor of OMNI Magazine and editor of Event Horizon and SCIFICTION. She currently acquires short fiction for Tor.com. In addition, she has edited more than a hundred science fiction, fantasy, and horror anthologies, including the annual The Best Horror of the Year, Lovecraft’s Monsters, Fearful Symmetries, Nightmare Carnival, The Doll Collection, The Monstrous, Nightmares: A New Decade of Modern Horror, and Black Feathers. Forthcoming are Haunted Nights (with Lisa Morton), and Mad Hatters and March Hares (stories inspired by Alice’s Adventures in in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There). More at http://www.ellendatlow.com/.

Matthew Kressel is a multiple Nebula Award-nominated writer and World Fantasy Award-nominated editor. His short stories have appeared in Tor.com, Lightspeed, Nightmare, Clarkesworld, io9.com, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Interzone, Electric Velocipede, Apex Magazine, and the anthologies Cyber World, Naked City, After, The People of the Book, and The Mammoth Book of Steampunk, and elsewhere. His work has been translated into five languages. His first novel, King of Shards, was hailed as “Majestic, resonant, reality-twisting madness,” from NPR Books. Kressel is a member of the Altered Fluid writing group. He created the Moksha manuscript submissions system, currently used by a majority of the largest speculative fiction publications. By day he works as a freelance web designer and full stack developer for small and large businesses. More at http://www.matthewkressel.net/.

What We Do

Fantastic Fiction at KGB is a monthly science fiction, fantasy, and horror reading series held on the third Wednesday of every month. We aim to promote speculative fiction authors and their forthcoming works. Authors read for about twenty to twenty-five minutes each, and we also sell the authors' books at the event (currently through Word Bookstore.) The series serves as a salon for writers, editors, agents, and fans to co-mingle in a relaxed environment. Many lasting friendships and professional connections have been made through the Fantastic Fiction reading series. It has been running since the late '90s. More on our history below.

Our Guest Readers

Some of our past readers include Joyce Carol Oates, Lucius Shepard, Jeffrey Ford, N.K. Jemisin, Scott Westerfeld, Kelly Link, Paul Tremblay, Laird Barron, China Miéville, Nancy Kress, Peter Straub, James Patrick Kelly, Victor LaValle, Joe Hill, Jack Ketchum, Brian Keene, Samuel Delany, Holly Black, Michael Swanwick, Kit Reed, Andy Duncan, Richard Bowes, Catherynne M. Valente, Jeff VanderMeer, Naomi Novik, Elizabeth Bear, Lev Grossman, and a host of other talented authors. 

See this link for a full list of our past readers: http://www.kgbfantasticfiction.org/previous-readers/

Why We Need Financial Support

Each month we give the authors a small stipend, we tip the bartenders (the bar provides free drinks to the guests), and we take the authors out for dinner after the readings. It costs us around $120 per month, so we need $1500 to maintain the series each year. We are looking to raise $4500, which would allow us to keep the series running for another three years. Each additional $1500 will let us run for an additional year. Fantastic Fiction has been a bright light in the speculative fiction community for nearly two decades, and with the community's help we can continue for many more years to come. Any donation, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated.

History

Terry Bisson and Alice K. Turner started the KGB Fantastic Fiction reading 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 editor 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. Author Matthew Kressel stepped in for Gavin in April of 2008.

Location

The reading series is held at the famous KGB Bar at 85 East 4th Street in Manhattan's East Village. Once serving as a speakeasy for Ukrainian Socialists, the Soviet-themed bar now is a home for various literature and poetry readings almost every night of the week.

Risks and challenges

We hope to receive enough funding to continue for another three years. Without funding, it would be difficult to maintain the series since we would have to pay for the guests out of pocket. Because the series fills a need in the genre community, serving as a salon for people with similar interests to come together once a month, the community would suffer a loss if the series were to vanish. We are therefore dependent upon the support of the community to continue our service of providing both a promotional vehicle for authors, and an entertainment and social setting for our audience.

    M Swanwick's MACII Guest of Honor Kit

    It's been lost in the mists of time, but Michael Swanwick was a guest of honor at MidAmeriCon II last year. This is, essentially, his gimme bag: One very nifty black canvas bag with the MAC II logo embroidered on it. The program book, signed and dated on the first day of the Worldcon. A full set of MAC II News. A card for the GOH display, explaining the significance of the van. Three MidAmeriCon II bookmarks. The program badge with Guest of Honor ribbon. An earlier badge from Boskone 53 with a MidAmericon II ribbon. A couple of other ribbons picked up along the way. Two MIMO (Move In Move Out) badges allowing access to the convention facilities before and after the convention -- particularly useful to time travelers. The invitation to the Post Hugo Finalists Reception. And, most desirable of all, the invitation to George R. R. Martin's Hugo Losers Party. Leave them lying around and when somebody asks, say, "Oh, those? I saved the guy's life once, and he's been giving me stuff like this ever since." I"ll back you up.

    In Other Lands ARC -- S. R. Brennan

    An advance reading copy of Sarah Rees Brennan's August 2017 YA novel IN OTHER LANDS.

    Sometimes it’s not the kid you expect who falls through to magicland, sometimes it’s . . . Elliott. He’s grumpy, nerdy, and appalled by both the dearth of technology and the levels of fitness involved in swinging swords around. He’s a little enchanted by the elves and mermaids. Despite his aversion to war, work, and most people (human or otherwise) he finds that two unlikely ideas, friendship and world peace, may actually be possible.

    “A subversive, sneaky, glorious tale of magic, longing, and growing into your wings.”

    Queers Destroy Science Fiction!

    From award-winning editor of LIGHTSPEED magazine, John Joseph Adams: Science fiction is about all people and for all people. Our Queers Destroy Science Fiction! special issue exists to relieve a brokenness in the genre that's been enabled time and time again by favoring certain voices and portrayals of particular characters. Here we bring together a team of queer writers and editors from around the globe to present horror that explores the nuances of culture, sexual identity, and history. Fiction, nonfiction articles, interviews, and book reviews; and more than two dozen personal essays from queer creators discussing their experiences as readers and writers of science fiction. Enjoy the destruction! Pages: 420 Limited Edition run: 1000 copies printed. Trade paperback.
