Celebrate Queer sci-fi and fantasy fiction at 'Gaylaxy Quest'

On Friday, February 21, Gay City, Queer Geek and Gay Romance Northwest host 'Gaylaxy Quest' - A Celebration of Queer Sci-Fi and Fantasy Fiction, at Gay City's Calamus Auditorium (517 E. Pike St.). This special Gay City 'Meet the Author' event will feature four Washington state writers who boldly explore star systems and fantasy realms while spotlighting LGBT main characters and relationships.

Enjoy an out-and-proud and out-of-this-world evening of readings by local writers Astrid Amara, Ginn Hale, Laylah Hunter, and Samuel Jarius Pettit. From Lambda Literary-nominated fantasies to taut sci-fi thrillers to racy space romps, each author takes the reader on an exciting, imaginative journey.

The FREE event will start at 7 p.m. and will include a Q&A with the authors, and a post-event reception.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Astrid Amara is a Lambda Literary finalist for her fantasy epic The Archer's Heart, and is known for both her contemporary and speculative romance works, including Policy of Lies, Water, and the urban fantasy anthology Irregulars.

Ginn Hale's fantasy/steampunk novel Wicked Gentlemen was a Lambda Literary finalist and won the Spectrum Award for best novel. Her other works include the 10-part fantasy epic The Rifter, the two-part fantasy series Lord of the White Hell, and a contributing story in the urban fantasy anthology Irregulars.

Laylah Hunter writes speculative fiction, often Queer, often erotic, often concerned with power dynamics, and sometimes all of those things at once. Layla's work includes stories in the fantasy anthologies All Wrapped Up and Masks Off Too!

Samuel Jarius Pettit is the author of the sci-fi novel Aklesh. Along with his writing, Pettit has appeared with Seattle Opera, Barrington Stage Company & VT. He teaches at Studio East in Kirkland and has worked regionally as choreographer and director of many stage productions, including Legally Blonde, Oliver, and Pirates of Penzance.

The Michael C. Wiedemann LGBT Library at Gay City's 'Meet The Author' series is a chance for Queer-identified and Queer-friendly authors to connect with the community in an intimate and personal setting. Join us to hear authors read selections from and discuss their latest works, as well as answer your questions.
