(from Clarionwest.org)


The 2007 Clarion West Summer Reading Series

Come hear our 2007 instructors read Tuesday evenings in June and July as part of Clarion West's Annual Summer Reading Series. Admission is now free - so be sure to take advantage of this great chance to hear live presentations of new and forthcoming work from some of speculative fiction's top authors and editors.

All readings start at 7:30 p.m. and take place in the JBL Theater in the Experience Music Project/Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame at 325 Fifth Avenue North, near Seattle Center.

Samuel R. Delany is arguably the most daring, wide-ranging, word-drunk, idea-besotted writer of science fiction and fantasy that the U.S. has ever produced. In his 45-year professional career, he has extensively explored issues of language, gender, race, sexuality, power, and otherness. Author of Dhalgren, Babel-17, and numerous novels, stories, and critical and philosophical works including his new novel Dark Reflections, he never fails to deliver a dynamic evening. One of a handful of African American SF authors, he has won numerous national and international awards including the Hugo and Nebula, and was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2002. Delany is Clarion West's 2007 Susan C. Petrey Fellow.

Appearing Tuesday, July 24.
