Event Details

Come celebrate the release Bram Stoker Award-winning author Gwendolyn Kiste's latest novel, Reluctant Immortals! Join us for an evening of engaging conversation with two fantastic Pittsburgh authors, Gwendolyn Kiste and Emma Riva.

Order Reluctant Immortals now.

For fans of Mexican Gothic, from three-time Bram Stoker Award–winning author Gwendolyn Kiste comes a novel inspired by the untold stories of forgotten women in classic literature—from Lucy Westnera, a victim of Stoker’s Dracula, and Bertha Mason, Mr. Rochester’s attic-bound wife in Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre—as they band together to combat the toxic men bent on destroying their lives, set against the backdrop of the Summer of Love, Haight-Ashbury, 1967.

Gwendolyn Kiste is the Bram Stoker Award­–winning author of The Rust Maidens, And Her Smile Will Untether the Universe, Pretty Marys All in a Row, The Invention of Ghosts, Boneset & Feathers, and Reluctant Immortals.

Her short fiction and nonfiction have appeared in Nightmare Magazine, Tor’s Nightfire, Vastarien, Black Static, Daily Science Fiction, Unnerving, Interzone, and LampLight, as well as Flame Tree Publishing’s Gothic Fantasy series, among others.

Originally from Ohio, she now resides on an abandoned horse farm outside of Pittsburgh with her husband, two cats, and not nearly enough ghosts.

Emma Riva is an author, fine arts journalist, and book artist.

Her first “novel” was a tale dictated to her father about a tiger in her washing machine at age two.

These days, she is the author of Night Shift in Tamaqua, a love story between two night shift workers in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley that features 13 original illustrations by painter Coyote Jacobs.

Emma is a graduate of The New School.

She lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
