The upcoming reading with Elizabeth Bear is now listed on the KGB calendar.
Drop me a line if you want to attend and you'd like an email reminder the weekend before the event.
I haven't even had a chance to listen to it yet, but my story "Observations from the City of Angels" is available now from the Escape Pod podcast, read by Stephen Eley!
Let me know what you think, and I'll do the same.
I'm very pleased to announce that John Klima's Spilt Milk Press will be bringing out a chapbook of my stories in Summer 2007. We're still working out the contents, but under John's expert editorial eye I'm confident the result will be worthwhile.
If you don't know, John publishes the excellent zine Electric Velocipede, home to more than one of my past stories, not to mention showcase for fine work by Hal Duncan, Mark Rich, Jeffrey Ford, Richard Bowes, Alan DeNiro, and many, many others.
More details as they emerge!
Yes, here I am at Readercon 17, making a quick post from my lovely hotel room.
I met bobhowe at Logan Airport, each of us having flown their separately, and then we made the quick drive to Burlington together in a rented car. After checking into our rooms, we met in the hotel pub for some lunch and a couple of beers. We also chatted briefly there (and afterward at con registration) with Jeff Ford, Patrick O'Leary, Paul Witcover, and Scott Edelman.
(I had to stop at two beers, considering that I will be reading to an audience of hopefully multiple persons in about 90 minutes.)
At registration I was happy to see that this afternoon's schedule had been rearranged enough that Mary Turzillo and I will be reading consecutively instead of at the same time. Mary is reading at 4:00 pm, and I'm reading at 4:30 pm. If you're here, come on down! At Laura's suggestion, I will be recording my reading to the laptop for my podcast.
Epidode #19 of "ShunnCast" is now available, in which boldness leads to a first discussion, the possible hues of areolae are considered, and Bill receives instruction as to when women's jewelry is not women's jewelry. (Step back, son -- give the man some whacking space.)
