The weather outside may be frightful, but this reading shall be delightful. By February 3rd we'll trust the snows are melted, the snows are gone. So we hope you'll join us to celebrate two of NYC's writers whose stars are ascending; cloud cover or no.
Carlos Hernandez is a SFWA author with over thirty publication credits in a variety of genres, with fiction recently published in Crossed Genres and Antimatter, and an SF one-act play published in Geek Theater. By day, Carlos is a CUNY associate professor of English, with appointments at BMCC and the CUNY Graduate Center, and a game designer currently working as the lead writer on the Lewis and Clark CRPG Meriwether, now in beta. He lives in Queens, which is most notable for not being Brooklyn.
Jennifer Marie Brissett is a writer, artist, former bookstore owner, and a former Web developer. She is a Jamaican-British American who immigrated to the US when she was about four and grew up in Cambridge, MA. In her late 20s she moved to Brooklyn, NY where, for three and a half years, she owned and ran the indie bookstore, Indigo Café & Books.
She has a Master's in Creative Writing from the Stonecoast MFA Program and a Bachelor's in Interdisciplinary Engineering (Electrical Engineering with a concentration in Visual Art) from Boston University.
Her writing has been included in The Best of Halfway Down the Stairs, 2005-2010, and a finalist for the 2013 storySouth Million Writers Award. Her debut novel Elysium, published by Aqueduct Press, has been short listed for the 2014 Philip K. Dick Award.
