The New York Review of Science Fiction Reading Series has showcased some of the most prominent and upcoming authors in the genre. However, the series’ commitment to providing a venue as an ongoing science fiction reading series in New York City, is open to all works of speculative fiction, whether they be works of fantasy, magical realism, horror, or science fiction. The range of writers who have participated in the series speaks of not only of its diversity, but its quality as well. Jonathan Carroll, Susanna Clarke, Samuel R. Delany, Ellen Kushner, Ursula K. LeGuin, Jonathan Lethem, Patricia A. McKillip, Walter Mosley, Naomi Novik, and Peter Straub are among the authors who have participated.
Most readings are taped for broadcast over WBAI, 99.5 FM, on Jim Freund’s science fiction radio program, Hour of the Wolf (http://www.hourwolf.com/toc.html). The broadcasts themselves are available ‘on demand’ for about 8 months from that same Web site.
The series was created by Gordon Van Gelder around 1989. Subsequent curators have included Robert K. J. Kilheffer, Claire Wolf, Joe Monti, Carol Cooper, Sheree Thomas, Paul Witcover and currently Jim Freund who has been recording the series from the start.
