Living in the same Pennsylvania town has afforded the close friends, Daryl Gregory and James Morrow, the opportunity to jointly promote their new Tachyon titles: We Are All Completely Fine and The Madonna and the Starship. One such event was recently captured by Michael Swanwick on his Flogging Babel blog.
Saturday, I went to Big Blue Marble in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, to hear James Morrow and Daryl Gregory read. It was a hoot.
Jim read from his latest book, The Madonna and the Starship, a novella in which a writer of pulp television has to face down diabolical space lobsters. Daryl read from We Are All Completely Fine, in which survivors of various horror-movie scenarios undergo group therapy.
In the audience were many writers including Fran Wilde, Eugene Myers, and Darrell Schweitzer.
Also, for some reason, a lot of psychiatrists.
Read the rest of Swanwick’s thoughts on the event at the Flogging Babel.
