Tachyon head honcho Jacob Weisman, editor of INVADERS: 22 TALES FROM THE OUTER LIMITS OF LITERATURE and forthcoming THE NEW VOICES OF FANTASY (with Peter S. Beagle), will be discussing Jews in Science Fiction: It’s Not a Fantasy at Jewish Community Library in San Francisco on Thursday, April 20, 7PM.


Jewish writers, including many from the Bay Area, are responsible for some of the most entertaining and mind-bending stories, books, and scripts written in the genres of science fiction and fantasy. Who are these local writers, and how do they apply Jewish ideas and themes to their work? Jacob Weisman, editor and publisher at Tachyon Publications, a San Francisco-based publisher of science fiction, fantasy, and literary fiction, will speak about writers including Peter S. Beagle, Avram Davidson, Lisa Goldstein, Robert Silverberg, and Richard A. Lupoff.  He’ll also answer questions about publishing.
