About this event

Dear friends,

We would like to invite you to join our Live! Literary! Event! on October 24th, 2021 at 7:30 PM Eastern Standard Time.

Carlos Hernandez and C. S. E. Cooney will be hosting an Infernal Salon on Arvan Eleron's Twitch channel to support Strange Horizons in the final days of its annual Kickstarter!

We know, we know: this immediately raises all kinds of questions!

What is Strange Horizons, you ask?

Strange Horizons is a "free weekly speculative fiction magazine with a global perspective." They publish all kinds of fiction, poetry, reviews, essays, interviews, roundtable discussions, and art--including science fiction, fantasy, horror, slipstream, and all other flavors of fantastika.

Strange Horizons aims to showcase new and established writers from diverse backgrounds and with diverse concerns.

What is an Infernal Salon, you ask?

C. S. E. Cooney and Carlos are making a roleplaying game! It's called Negocios Infernales. Unlike other roleplaying games, however, Negocios Infernales uses a spooky deck of custom cards to determine success and failure, inspire improvisation, create characters, and create mayhem in the collaborative story you are telling.

For our Infernal Salon, we will give every writer a prompt of one or more cards from the Negocios Infernales deck. Then we'll set a timer for 30 minutes.

Whilst our guests are inspired to write great and/or goofy works of fiction, poetry, memoir, or creative laundry lists, we will be interviewing artists and editors who have worked with Strange Horizons.

At the end of it all, the writers will share their infernally-inspired works with all of us! Much revelry will be had by all!

Who is Arvan Eleron?

Arvan Eleron (né Gregory Wilson) is a Twitch broadcaster, Dungeon Master, gamer, author, musician, podcaster, and professor. Every week he streams games, interviews, tabletop roleplaying sessions, and more, all with the best community on the Internet: the Arvanauts!

The Evening's Entertainment:

We will not only be drawing cards for our invited guests, but we'll be doing an extra draw for our streaming audience, so you can join in the fun too!

We'll see you there for an evening of creative writing, reading, and supporting Strange Horizons!

Thank you so much!

C. S. E. Cooney & Carlos Hernandez
