Oct 16: Fbomb Flash Fiction Reading Series! Will the real Fbomb Host please stand up?

Theme: No One Can Agree on Who Kona Picked to Sub for Her

(All shows start at 7:30 at the Mercury Cafe, 2199 California Street, Denver)

That’s right! So far we have hosts Girls Just Wanna Have Us, Hillary Leftwich, Roseanna Frechette, Nick Morris, and a host of others all claiming they are hosting! See what happens on Tuesday, October 16! Nancy Stohlman and special guest Nick Busheff will give a little preview of the Oct 26 performance of Madam Velvet’s Cabaret of Oddities! There will (hopefully!) be books for sale, hot off the presses, so get your signed one!

girlsHosts Girls Just Wanna Have Us! Girls Just Wanna Have Us is a flash rock band, comprised of Daryl Gent in the Car, Hall-an and John(athan) Oates Montgomery. If flash fiction tells a story in 1000 words or less, they attempt to cover songs from the 1980s in 1000 heartbreaks or less, 3 chords or less, 2 instruments or less, 1 rehearsal or less. When an Fbomb host suddenly has to cancel at the last minute, they are the only ones flexible, courageous, and beloved enough to replace them.

nancyFeaturing Nancy Stohlman and her book Madam Velvet’s Cabaret of Oddities! Nancy Stohlman is the founder and curator of the Fbomb Flash Fiction Series circa 2013 and counting! Tonight she will be releasing her new book, Madam Velvet’s Cabaret of Oddities!

My Top 10 Books by Friends 2013

I have awesome, brilliant, prolific friends. Here is my list of books by friends for 2013: Note–these books weren’t necessarily published this year, only read by me this year. And if your book isn’t on it, it’s because I’m a terribly slow reader (as many of you know)…or I secretly hate you. In no particular order:

1. Wild Life by Kathy Fish

2. Taxis and Shit by Jonathan Montgomery

3. Paper Thin by Rob Geisen

4. Marvelous Things by David Wagner

5. From the Umberplatzen and The Merrill Diaries by Susan Tepper

6. The President and Other Jokes by Sommer Browning
