The Poe reading and celebration is tomorrow --come sleet or some shine!
Despite the scary weather report for Tuesday Night: Rain and snow before midnight, then snow and sleet between midnight and 3am, then freezing rain and sleet after 3am. Low around 31. East wind between 8 and 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%.

THE SHOW WILL GO ON and I hope all you New Yorkers will be there. (otherwise I'll get really depressed)--it'll be nice and cozy and there will be refreshments.

Please note, from now through at least April, the New York Review of Science Fiction Readings will move to the main space at the South Street Seaport Museum at 12 Fulton Street. That means that our Poe's Bicentennial Birthday Bash will not be at the Melville Gallery as previously announced. This space is just around the corner, so the previous directions are still good.

In summary:

Edgar Allan Poe's 200th Birthday Celebration
New York Review of SF Reading @ South St. Seaport Museum:

Take 2, 3, 4, 5, J, Z, or M to Fulton Street; A and C to
Broadway-Nassau. Walk east on Fulton Street

The Poe Bicentennial happens only once. After that, nevermore.



Personal note from Jim Freund: This is a lovely space which we've used twice before -- last June for Thomas M. Disch and Karen Russell, and previously for Susanna Clarke. It is wheelchair-accessible and purportedly haunted. Let's hope Poe joins us.

You'd think if you cancelled the Frost, the weather would be better!

That's very good--I'm impressed. :-)
