Transcript Authors' Readings — Authors' Readings Theodore Sturgeon 2:00 P.M. One of the legendary figures of "Golden Age" science fiction, Ted is a short story writer par excellence, whose lyricism and humanism have been continuously extolled by his peers. Winner of Hugo, Nebula and International Fantasy Awards, Ted was until recently, except for More Than Human, always a classroom classic, nearly out of print; fortunately Bluejay plans to issue a new series, The Stars are the Styx, Venus Plus X, Alien Cargo, The Dreaming Jewels and The Golden Helix, beginning this month. He'll read a comic short, "Pruzy's Pot," and a lyrical piece, "The Graveyard Reader." Nancy WiHard 3:00 P.M. A poet and children's story writer, Nancy WiHard was the first to win a Newberry Medal for a book of poetry, A visit to William Blake's Inn, 1981. She has also published a fantasy trilogy (Sailing to Cythera, Island of the Grass King, and Uncle Terrible), and most recently a book of new poems (Household Tales of Moon and Water) and a collection of stories and essays (Angel in the Parlor). She'll read "The Doctrine of the Leatherstocking Jesus," from the latter, and poems from the former. Jean Lorrah 4:00 P.M. Jean is the editor and publisher of Pandora as well as author of the Savage Empire fantasy series (sequels: Dragon Lord of..., Captive of...), now issued by Berkley Books. In collaboration with Jacqueline Lichtenberg, she has also co- authored several of the Sime/Gen science fiction series books for Doubleday. A Professor of English at Murray State College in Kentucky, she'll read from a new novel, Ambrov Keon, just completed under contract to DAW. John Domini 5:00 P.M. A short story writer, John has appeared in Ploughshares, The New Republic and The Paris Review and published his first book-length collection, Bedlam, in 1983. He also teaches English at Oregon State University. He'll read a new story, "Astral Projection." SATURDAY, MARCH 24 Jacqueline Lichtenberg 11:00 A.M. Jacquie is the originator of the Doubleday Sime/Gen science fiction series, which now runs to six volumes, and the Dushau series which began with Molt Brother, a study of human/machine relationships which she introduced at the Third Conference on the Fantastic. She'll read a selection from the third volume of the Dushau series, which is now in progress. Brian W. Aldiss 12 Noon The Dean of British Science Fiction, winner of numerous awards in England, Europe and America, Aldiss is now completing what many believe to be his masterwork, the Helliconia Trilogy, set on a planet where the seasons are millennia in length. Vying in scope with Asimov's famous Foundation series, the Helliconia books have drawn rave reviews on both sides of the Atlantic. Aldiss has done several distinguished works of criticism in addition to the dozens of novels and hundreds of stories on which his international reputation is based. The name of the selection he'll read today was not available at press time. Fritz Leiber 1:00 P.M. The Grand Master of Fantasy, winner of Hugo and Nebula Awards, whose range runs from the chilling Conjure Wife to the tongue-in-cheek Fafhrd & Grey Nouser series, Fritz has been recognized as chief among American fantasists by the Berkley Masters of Science Fiction and Fantasy Series, which will bring out Ghost Light, second in the series (first was Arthur C. Clarke's The Sentinel) next month. Included in the volume is his autobiography, a new novella (the title piece) and six classic stories. Fritz will read from the new collection. Glen Swetman 2:00 P.M. The author of eight books of poetry and a verse play, Glen Swetman was nominated for the Pulitzer prize for Concerning Carpenters and Childhood Saints, and his thoughts run frequently toward the gothic or the bizarre ("Fiery Death of the Wolf Man", "Regarding Spring as the Vampire"). He is a licensed alligator hunter. He also coordinates the creative writing program at Tulane University. He'll read a selection of poems. Somtow Sucharitkul 3:00 P.M. Winner of the Campbell Award as Best New Writer in 1981, Somtow has published four novels and two story collections since his first appearance here (Starship & Haiku, Light on the Sound, The Throne of Madness, The Aquiliad, and the collections MaU World and Fire From the Wine Dark Sea). As S. P. Somtow (a concession to a Berkley editor who didn't think anyone could pronounce his name) he will bring out his first "mainstream" horror novel, Vampire Junction, this June. In progress are two more volumes for Bantam, Utopia Hunters, a linked story collection, and the concluding volume of the Inquestor trilogy, The Rebel Shadows. Meanwhile Off-Centaur Productions has issued a tape of his symphonic compositions, including Starscapes, recorded at the Second Conference on the Fantastic. He'll read from Vampire Junction. Terence E. Green 4:00 P.M. A Canadian science fiction writer, Terry has published stories in both Canada and the U.S., appearing in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Aurora, and the anthologies Alien Worlds and Other Worlds. The title of his reading was not available at press time. Justin Leiber 5:00 P.M. The author of Beyond Rejection and a professor of philosophy at the University of Houston, Justin comes by his writing talent naturally as the son of Fritz Leiber, with whom he co-authored The Mystery of the Japanese Clock. Recently returned from a junket to Japan, to observe macaque monkeys, he will read "The Final Meeting of Kinch and Sorgun," from his third novel, The Sword and the Eye.
