May debriefing

            

Scott Smith reads at Tuesday Funk Brooke Wonders reads at Tuesday Funk Brad Beaulieu reads at Tuesday Funk William Shunn reads at Tuesday Funk Tim W. Brown reads at Tuesday Funk Paul McComas reads at Tuesday Funk

We're sounding like a broken record at this point, but if you missed Tuesday Funk #34 last night, you definitely missed our best reading yet. Want to hear about it? Okay, fine.

brokenrecord.jpg Our delighted audience last night heard Scott Smith recount his plan to indoctrinate his newborn daughter in the cult of the female superhero (see below), Brooke Wonders dislodge a recalcitrant Cthulhu from an inconvenient nostril, and Bradley P. Beaulieu singe the sin clean out of a character from his acclaimed new novel The Winds of Khalakovo. And that was just for starters.

After a break to let our audience visit John the Bartender, co-host William Shunn read a longer-than-usual poem, "Infidel Dog." Tim W. Brown flung us like Connecticut Yankees back to 1830s America in an excerpt from his new novel Second Acts. And Paul McComas, author of Unforgettable: Harrowing Futures, Horrors, and (Dark) Humor ... well, you're just going to have to wait a few days for the video on that one. You won't believe the fish story he told.

So get in the groove, and don't miss our next reading! Our Science Fiction Sextuple Feature will take place on the special date of Tuesday, June 21st, and will feature writers from the Wellspring Workshop to include Brenda Cooper, Sarah K. Castle, Holly McDowell, Vincent Jorgensen, Kelly Swails and Gregory A. Wilson.. It's gonna be out of this world.
