READING: JACK MCDEVITT & KIMBERLY UNGER
Jack will read “Searching for Oz”, an alternate history tale exploring what happens if SETI had, during its early years, picked up radio transmissions from the stars.
Kimberly will read from NUCLEATION. Operating a finely-tuned machine across a billion years of space takes a delicate touch and nerves of steel.
