William Shunn is a former host and producer of Tuesday Funk. His memoir, The Accidental Terrorist: Confessions of a Reluctant Missionary, will appear from Sinister Regard Publishers on November 10th. Of the book, Cory Doctorow has said, "This just may be my favorite true-life amazing-but-true tale--never has threatening an aircraft been funnier or more thought-provoking."

Since his first publication in 1993, Bill's short fiction has appeared in Salon, Storyteller, Bloodstone Review, Newtown Literary, Asimov's Science Fiction, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Science Fiction Age, Realms of Fantasy, Electric Velocipede, and various anthologies and year's-best collections. His work has been shortlisted for the Hugo Award, the Nebula Award, and the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award. His chapbook An Alternate History of the 21st Century appeared from Spilt Milk Press in 2007, and his novella Cast a Cold Eye, written with Derryl Murphy, came out from PS Publishing in 2009.

He currently lives in New York City with his wife, Laura Chavoen, and their soft-coated wheaten terrier, Ella the Wonder Dog. For more fun, visit www.shunn.net or follow @shunn on Twitter.

Please join Bill and all our amazing readers on Tuesday, November 3, 2015, upstairs at Hopleaf at 7:30 pm. This 21-and-older event is free.
