“Ephemerata Speculata,” or EphSpec, is an ephemeral, time-based event whose purpose is to allow writers of speculative fiction to share their work with the public, and to provide an opportunity for community with other writers and readers of the genre. The inaugural EphSpec event will be held at 5:00 pm on Sunday, July 17, 2011 at Tabor Space, 5441 SE Belmont, Portland, Oregon (corner of 55th and SE Belmont). Come hear writers Bob Zahniser, David D. Levine, David W. Goldman, and Jennifer Cox read their work! For more information, see http://www.ephspec.com.
(I’ll be reading “Charlie the Purple Giraffe.”)
