Reading no. 7 — Carrie Vaughn & Betsy Dornbusch

Reading no. 7 —
Carrie Vaughn
& Betsy Dornbusch

Authors Betsy Dornbusch and Carrie Vaughn joined me for the Denver Science Fiction and Fantasy Reading Series no. 7. Carrie was the Series’s first reader, in November 2017, and it was a pleasure to have her back. In a huge year, Carrie won the Philip K. Dick Award for Bannerless, which she read at Reading no. 1, and she released book two in that series, The Wild Dead.

For this reading, Carrie shared passages from her series-related short story, “Where Would You Be Now?”, published by Tor. Betsy read from her novel The Silver Scar.

As always, BookBar gave us the most marvelous home for the evening. Books were sold and signed, and we had a great time. Go to BookBar, buy books, and support local and independent booksellers. For every book you buy at BookBar, a fairy gets its wings.1

Be sure to RSVP for Reading no. 8 on 12 January 2019, at BookBar, 7pm. For January’s reading, we’ll once more have editors Jim LeMay and Chuck Anderson from Mad Cow Press. For something different and fun, we’ll have three authors from the anthology Fistful of Dinosaurs—Lou Berger, Rebecca Hodgkins, and Jamie Ferguson. What’s not to love about some well-crafted dinosaur stories?


Check back for more information, follow developments on Facebook, join the Meetup, or better yet sign up for the mailing list. Learn more about the Reading Series.

Reading no. 8 — Rebecca Hodgkins, Lou J. Berger, & Jamie Ferguson


  1. Full disclosure: That’s not true. A fairy won’t get its wings. The Loch Ness monster will, however, finally be able to come out of hiding because, you know, it’s 2019 and we really ought to allow monsters to come out of their lake closet.
