The Shades & Shadows Podcast

We are Los Angeles's only regularly occurring genre fiction reading series. Each episode, we will introduce three authors who write the kinds of works you won't hear about anywhere else. Debuting, emerging, and established authors in the fields of horror, science fiction, fantasy, noir, and anything else that slips through the cracks, is hard to identify, or plays with the things that go bump in the night.
