Hello everyone! This is a friendly reminder to circle July 24th in your calendar over and over and over again until you can’t remember why. Because it’s PARTY TIME.
It’s our biggest year yet, so it’s our biggest PARTY ever! Since 2008, this stubby little rocketship has traversed the realms of original fiction, original art, given you rereads and rewatches from your favorite worlds, not to mention articles, reviews, and original essays exploring all aspects of science fiction, fantasy and the universe! Tor.com’s fifth birthday was on July 20th, so we’re throwing ourselves a party tomorrow—Wednesday, July 24th—and you’re invited!
For the milestone of turning 5 Earth-years old, we’ll be offering up complimentary drinks, Tor.com swag, free book giveaways, other special birthday goodies, but also, a show. At the start of the festivities we’ll be hosting Lev Grossman, Ellen Datlow, Genevieve Valentine, and Michael Swanwick in an exclusive SF trivia contest. Hosted by Ryan Britt, and featuring secret prizes and exciting stakes, this spectacle is not to be missed. Come place your bets on your contender!
It will all go down at Housing Works Bookstore and Café in New York City on Wednesday July 24th, 6:30 PM. All the Tor.com staff will be on hand to hang out, so come have a glass of complimentary wine/beer and talk about the greatness of the last five years. Join us for this once-in-this-universe special birthday party!
