Emma Bull and Will Shetterly will appear for a reading and book signing on Tuesday, July 31, 2007 from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. at Oread Books on level 2 of the Kansas Union on the University of Kansas campus in Lawrence. Each author is launching a new hardcover novel this month, published by Tor Books. Emma Bull’s new title, Territory, is a fantastic take on events in Tombstone, Arizona, in 1881. Will Shetterly’s book The Gospel of the Knife is a magical coming-of-age story set in turbulent 1969 Florida. The authors’ visit is presented as part of Oread Books’ yearly “Sci Fi July,” and free and open to the public.
Emma Bull graduated from Beloit College, and then worked as a freelance journalist, editor and graphic designer. She also performs as a guitarist and singer. Her novel War for the Oaks won the Locus Award for Best First Novel. Her subsequent works include the novels Falcon, Bone Dance (a Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy Award-finalist), Finder and (with Steven Brust) Freedom and Necessity. Bull has also written screenplays, a children’s book and short stories. “Bull has quickly forged a stellar reputation for sharply original storytelling.” - Booklist
Will Shetterly writes novels, screenplays, short stories and comic books. His books include Elsewhere, Nevernever, Chimera, Double Feature and Dogland. His writing is inspired by an adventurous life including work on his parents’ trading post near Ojibwe lands in northern Ontario, Canada, and at a roadside attraction they operated in Florida, which inspired Dogland. He has been an actor, small press publisher and screenwriter. In 1994, he ran for Governor of Minnesota and finished third in a field of six. “Compelling, absorbing, hard-edged work.” – Kirkus Review, of Shetterly’s Dogland
Emma Bull and Will Shetterly have taught writing at Clarion West in Seattle, Washington and at the Pima Writers Workshop in Tucson, Arizona. They have conducted writing workshops in Los Angeles, California, and elsewhere and are members of the Interstate Writers’ Workshop. Bull and Shetterly are married and live in Bisbee, Arizona.
