Our ongoing Blogger/Author Pairings series features conversations between authors and bloggers who share territories, passions, and preoccupations. New York City-based author Ben Marcus discusses his new novel, The Flame Alphabet, with blogger Ryan Britt, a teacher at The Gotham Writers’ Workshop and staff writer for the popular science fiction and fantasy blog, Tor.com and Tor’s series “Genre in the Mainstream.” In The Flame Alphabet, the most maniacally gifted writer of our generation delivers a work of heartbreak and horror, a novel about how far we will go, and the sorrows we will endure, in order to protect our families. Both morally engaged and wickedly entertaining, a gripping page-turner as strange as it is moving, this intellectual horror story ensures Ben Marcus’s position in the first rank of American novelists. The event is hosted by series curator Ron Hogan, creator of the seminal literary blog Beatrice.com.

Gala by Ayala Sella.

Eve once fed me
an apple from her garden.
Its name was Gala
and I was wearing
large green mittens
and dirty cream shoes
descending a long escalator
in the city
after Eden.
Adam wasn’t there
and we were both
pregnant smoking
cigarettes without tar
and drinking tall silver
cans of Japanese beer
after the night of the
lunar eclipse.
I think Adam was
off somewhere
reading about Socialism
and punk rock on the toilet
(but we weren’t sure.)

Leo Koenig Inc. is pleased to announce the fifth solo exhibition of new paintings by Torben Giehler. Giehler is known for his geometric abstractions, influenced by futuristic universes, and finished with mathematical precision. In a departure from the vibrant color palette and electrified vortex of his previous paintings, these new works extend a zen-like calm, alchemically fusing the synapses of the human brain to the grids and networks of digitized technology.
