Readercon Schedule

I’m looking forward to my first Readercon next month! Here’s my schedule:

Panel: Defying the Pigeonhole
Thursday, 9pm. Blue Hills.

“This panel of readers will celebrate favorite authors who can’t be contained by a single genre—some exploring multiple genres within one work, some dipping in and out of them throughout their careers—and talk about the ways they break free of expectations to soar.”

With Marissa Lingen, Michael Dirda, Chandler Klang Smith, and Ellen Datlow.

Friday, 7pm. Salon B.

I plan on reading both published and new material.

The Open Book Author Cabaret, June 22

Date: Friday, June 22
Time: 8PM TO 10PM
Place: Elkins Central: The Elkins Park Train Station Arts Venue

I’ll be reading alongside Nathaniel Popkin, Tom McAllister, Madeline Miller, and Robin Black.

“The Barrens” on the May Short Fiction Roundup

The Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog has included “The Barrens” in its May 2018 roundup of short fiction:

“The Barrens” is a haunting, complex tale, simultaneously frightening and strangely uplifting. Feldman skillfully draws together the treacherous physical world of the Barrens with the shifting inner landscape of the mind of a teen headed into adulthood. There are chilling scenes of horror, vividly drawn characters, and music that serves both as a beacon and bait. Common coming-of-age fears—what to do when high school is over, how to avoid losing touch with friends when you move away, how to find your place in the world—are woven together with the literal monsters lurking in the woods.

Read the whole list here. The issue is currently available for purchase in most Barnes & Nobles as well as online. Electronic versions are available worldwide from Weightless Books, as well as from Amazon (US) and Amazon (UK).
