Brian Evenson in Conversation With Matt Bell

August 3, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

A sentient, murderous prosthetic leg; shadowy creatures lurking behind a shimmering wall; brutal barrow men — of all the terrors that populate The Glassy, Burning Floor of Hell (Coffee House), perhaps the most alarming are the beings who decimated the habitable Earth: humans. In his new short story collection, Brian Evenson envisions a chilling future beyond the Anthropocene that forces excruciating decisions about survival and self-sacrifice in the face of toxic air and a natural world torn between revenge and regeneration. Combining psychological and ecological horror, each tale thrums with Evenson’s award-winning literary craftsmanship, dark humor, and thrilling suspense. Evenson will be joined in conversation by Matt Bell, author of Appleseed and In the House Upon the Dirt Between the Lake and the Woods.
