Transcript Authors' Readings — Authors' Readings The Sandpiper Room Chairperson: Ginger Curry THURSDAY, MARCH 22 Ginger Curry 10:00 A.M. Ginger is one of South Florida's rising young professionals, with stories in such diverse places as Woman's World, Pig Iron Lit and the forthcoming Magic in Ithkar, an Andre Norton anthology. She will read "Guardians of the Secret" from that anthology. Douglas E. Winter 11:00 A.M. Doug is a literary barrister who has become the world's leading authority on Stephen King (next to Stephen himself), and an expert on the horror genre generally. He'll read "Masks," and/or maybe a piece by his fictional alter-ego, Billy Bob Burnette. James Gunn 12:00 Noon Jim is a central figure in both the literary and scholarly canons of science fiction, with dozens of novels, like the classics The Immortals, The Joy Makers and The Listeners, and dozens of scholarly studies (like his Hugo- winning biography of Isaac Asimov) to his credit. He'll read a new short story, "Man of Parts," forthcoming in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. William F. Wu 1:00 P.M. The story Bill first presented here two years ago, "Wong's Lost & Found Emporium," is a Nebula finalist this spring. Meanwhile, "Hong's Bluff" has sold to Omni Magazine, and "Dead White Women," his latest and the story he'll read today, is looking for a market. Bill's column on "lost" fantasy classics is a regular feature of Fantasy Review. Stephen King 2:00 P.M. Our Guest of Honor's "brand-name" credentials as "King of the Modern Horror Story" are the result of a steady stream of best-selling novels with a weird or supernatural twist, beginning with Carrie (1974), and continuing with Salem's Lot (1975), The Shining (1977), The Stand (1978), The Dead Zone (1979), Firestarter (1980), Cujo (1981), Christine (1983), and Pet Sematary (1984). His collaboration with Peter Straub, The Talisman, is due later this year. Meanwhile he has published nearly a hundred short stories, collected in Night Shift (1978) and Different Seasons (1982) and a new collection, Skeleton Crew, scheduled for 1985, from which today's reading will probably come. Jayne Sturgeon 3:00 P.M. Jayne is a singer and composer as well as a writer, and has appeared with the San Diego Symphony Orchestra. Besides managing husband Theodore Sturgeon's career, she does scripts for Caedmon Records' series of dramatized novels, and publishes short stories in Analog and elsewhere. She'll read a selection from a novel in progress, The Chipdren (about computer-kids), and "Last Words" from Analog. comics 2] Mark Dintenfass 4:00 P.M. Mark is an academic who writes novels, five of them so far (Make Yourself an Earthquake, The Case Against Org, Montgomery Street, Figure 8), and he'll read from the fifth, Old World, New World, published by William Morrow to rave reviews in 1982. He has taught at Haile Selassie University in Ethiopia, and is now Professor of English at Lawrence University, Wisconsin. Gary Alan Ruse 5:00 P.M. Gary is a native Miamian who writes science fiction at night while working days in an art store. (He also illustrates children's books.) He's published three novels with Doubleday (Houndstooth, A Game of Titans, Gods of Cerus Major) and is a regular contributor to Analog. He'll read a brand new story, "The Spiralled Horn." FRIDAY, MARCH 23 John Morressy 12 Noon John writes both fantasy and science fiction, also teaches creative writing at Franklin Pierce College in New Hampshire. His sixteenth novel, The Mansions of Space, was published by Berkley last year, and his stories have appeared regularly in Omni, Playboy, Twilight Zone, Fantasy 6c Science Fiction and various "Best of the Year" collections. His most recent collection is Other Stories (Northern New England Review Press) which brings together seven previously unpublished pieces. Two forthcoming novels are The Time of the Annihilator, prolog to a fantasy trilogy, and The Questing of Kedrigern, a spoof of the genre. He'll read a new story, "The Crown, Like Alice." Joseph Green 1:00 P.M. Joe calls himself a "hard science" fiction writer, though he began his career in England writing for New Worlds. He's the author of seventy-odd short stories and a dozen novels, including the recent Crystal Trilogy, and such classics as Conscience Interplanetary, and The Mind Behind the Eye. A native of Florida, he's a conference regular, familiar to most of you. He'll read a brand new story, "This High Moment."
