Join us for an evening of speculative fiction (both science fiction and fantasy) with Eugene Fischer, Janalyn Guo, and Jessica Reisman. Eugene Fischer will be reading from his novella The New Mother (http://www.eugenefischer.com/).

Eugene Fischer is a Texas-native science fiction writer whose work focuses on how biological and technological factors influence social and self-definition. He graduated from Trinity University with a B.S. in Physics, then studied at the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers’ Workshop in San Diego. Most recently he was a Teaching-Writing Fellow and Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where he earned his MFA and developed an undergraduate curriculum for science fiction writing. A recently arrived Austin resident, he spends his days working on the novel sequel to his Asimov’s cover story novella, The New Mother.

Janalyn Guo grew up in China, Hawaii, and Houston, and currently lives in Austin, Texas. Her fiction has appeared in Interfictions, The Bat City Review, Birkensnake, Lit, Tarpaulin Sky, and other places. If she were to think really hard about it, her writings often feature slivers of displacement psychology, robotic devices, dogs in cones, and hair. But ultimately, her stories are more like little markers of time and space. She received a BA in English Literature from Washington University in St. Louis and an MFA in Literary Arts at Brown University, where she taught fiction courses and walked with many dogs. Nowadays, she splits her time between Denton and Austin for work and reads lots of comics.

Jessica Reisman’s stories have appeared in many magazines and anthologies, with work recently in Phantom Drift and the anthology Rayguns Over Texas. She has stories upcoming in PS Publishing’s PostScripts and the anthology 100 Lightnings. Her first novel, The Z Radiant, described as “thinking reader’s sci-fi,” was published by Five Star Speculative Fiction.
