Presents Author Event

Mad Hatters and March Hares

with  Ellen Datlow, Stephen Graham Jones, Matthew Kressel, Katherine Vaz and Kris Dikeman including a special Mad Hat Contest

From master anthologist Ellen Datlow comes an all-original of weird tales inspired by the strangeness of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. Between the hallucinogenic, weird, imaginative wordplay and the brilliant mathematical puzzles and social satire, Alice has been read, enjoyed, and savored by every generation since its publication. Datlow asked eighteen of the most brilliant and acclaimed writers working today to dream up stories inspired by all the strange events and surreal characters found in Wonderland.

Featuring stories and poems from Seanan McGuire, Jane Yolen, Catherynne M. Valente, Delia Sherman, Genevieve Valentine, Priya Sharma, Stephen Graham Jones, Richard Bowes, Jeffrey Ford, Angela Slatter, Andy Duncan, C.S.E. Cooney, Matthew Kressel, Kris Dikeman, Jane Yolen, Kaaron Warren, Ysbeau Wilce, and Katherine Vaz.

In celebration of the release of Mad Hatters and March Hares, Jean Cocteau will host a special Mad Hatter Hat Contest. Channel your inner Mad Hatter and create your own Mad Hatter Hat and have the master of horror Ellen Datlow judge your creation. Mad Hatter Hats will be judged on originality, creativity, characterization, artistic quality and inventiveness.
