Meet Our Readers: William Shunn

            

High strung William Shunn is the author of thirty works of short fiction, including the Hugo, Nebula, and Sturgeon-nominated novella "Inclination" (available as an audiobook from Audible.com). His stories have appeared in Salon, Asimov's, F&SF, Science Fiction Age, Realms of Fantasy, Storyteller, Electric Velocipede, and various Year's Best anthologies. An early draft of his memoir The Accidental Terrorist can be heard as a podcast.

Bill is also a co-producer and co-host of our Tuesday Funk readings, of which his Poems by Bill are a regular feature. In the wake of the recent World Science Fiction Convention in Chicago, he is beginning to come to terms with the fact that his best-known piece of writing by far is his essay on "Proper Manuscript Format." He is unwelcome ever to return to Canada, and claims he is not actually a grand motherfucker.

Please see Bill and the rest of our accomplished readers at 7:30 pm on Friday, September 14th, for our Chicago Writers Conference Special Edition at Open Books in Chicago!
