KGB FANTASTIC FICTION ONLINE RAFFLE

By | July 12, 2008 | 1 Comments

As you may have heard I’ll be taking part in the KGB Bar’s Fantastic Fiction reading Series on August 20th. In the mean time, they’re holding a raffle to raise money for this amazing reading series. From what I understand on the night that I read I get to drink for free, so for god’s sake give them the funds needed.

KGB FANTASTIC FICTION ONLINE RAFFLE
