Andrew Foster Altschul is the author of the novels Lady Lazarus and Deus Ex Machina. His short fiction and essays have appeared in Esquire, McSweeney’s, Ploughshares, Fence, One Story, StoryQuarterly, Best New American Voices and O. Henry Prize Stories. He is the Books Editor of The Rumpus and director of the Center for Literary Arts at San Jose State University. He lives in San Francisco.

Valerie Fioravanti’s work has appeared in many literary journals, including North American Review, Night Train, and Cimarron Review. She received a Fulbright Fellowship to Italy, and her story collection, Garbage Night at the Opera, was recently a finalist for the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction. She lives in Sacramento, where she teaches private workshops from her home and runs the Stories on Stage reading series.

In order to kickstart financial support for our 2011 season, we’ll be raffling off at least a dozen books written by SoS contributors. Raffles are $5. Stories on Stage also has t-shirts available for purchase for $15. Sales benefit our “Pay the Artists” fund.

Stories on Stage happily accepts wine donations.
