Speculative Boston Reading Series

Speculative Boston is a reading series for science fiction, fantasy, and horror of all kinds. Each Speculative Boston event invites two to three authors to read from their works and have a conversation. Featuring new releases and new authors, the series is a celebration of the thriving community of speculative fiction writers and fans in the New England area.

All readings are free to attend, but we encourage you to show your support by purchasing books by our authors.

About the Authors:

Errick Nunnally was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, and served one tour in the Marine Corps before deciding art school was a safer pursuit. He enjoys art, comics, and genre novels.

His work has appeared in several anthologies and is best described as “dark pulp.” His work can be found in LAMPLIGHT, TRANSCENDENT, WICKED WITCHES, THE FINAL SUMMONS, PROTECTORS 2, the Podcast, NIGHTLIGHT, and the upcoming ChiZine novel, LIGHTNING WEARS A RED CAPE.

He’s also published two collections of short fiction, 13 Views of the Suicide Woods and White Knight and Other Pawns. Before devoting himself to full time writing, he worked as a civil and criminal litigator, a university philosophy instructor, and a martial arts teacher. He lives outside of Boston with his wife and son, where he is at work on his next novel.
