Good books, good friends, and good conversation. Please join us for another evening of readings hosted by SF in SF. This June’s readers are Rudy Rucker and Michael Blumlein; they will be reading, and participating in a discussion moderated by Bay Area author Terry Bisson.
Rudolph “Rudy” von Bitter Rucker is an American mathematician, computer scientist, science fiction author, artist, and one of the founders of the Cyberpunk literary movement. He is also the great-great-great-grandson of the philosopher G.W.F. Hegel. The author of both fiction and nonfiction, Rucker is best known for the novels in the Ware tetralogy, the first two of which (Software and Wetware) both won Philip K. Dick Awards. Until its closure in 2014 he edited the science fiction webzine Flurb. His most recent book is Journals: 1990-2014.
Michael Blumlein is the author of The Movement of Mountain, XY (made into a film), The Healer, Ageless, and the novella “The Roberts,” as well as the award-winning story collection The Brains of Rats, and What the Doctor Ordered. Twice nominated for the World Fantasy Award and twice for the Bram Stoker Award, Blumlein received the Readercon Award, and has been short-listed for the Tiptree Award. In addition to writing, Dr. Blumlein is a practicing M.D., and a faculty member at the University of California at San Francisco
Doors and cash bar open at 5:30 – Program begins at 6:30. Admission is $10 at the door (no one is turned away for lack of funds.)
As always Borderlands Books will be on hand with copies of the authors’ work.
We hope to see you here!
