Shades & Shadows is the only reading series in Los Angeles that focuses exclusively on dark fiction. We love dark fantasy, horror, science fiction, noir, you name it. Each event brings a blend of six debuting, emerging, or established authors together, each of whom will read for approximately seven minutes from their own works. They will delight and terrify you, making you squirm in your seat and raising the hairs upon your necks. You may get to hear excerpts from stories that haven’t yet been published, or from novels you haven’t yet discovered, or you might hear a favorite piece from a collection or novel you love and cherish. Our aim is to give you, the readers, an opportunity to explore new authors and expand your dark horizons.
