I learn via Jeff Ford ([info]14theditch) that Rick Bowes won the voting in the Million Writers Award for Fiction! Way to go, Rick!

And of course, though it's old news by now, Jeff himself won an Edgar over the weekend for his excellent novel The Girl in the Glass. Congrats, man!

Electronic copies of two more new old stories have gone on sale at Fictionwise this week:

These are the last two stories that will go up at Fictionwise for this time being, and they bring the total number available there to fourteen.

The user icon for this entry is taken from the illustration that ran with "Two Paths" on its initial publication in Science Fiction Age over twelve years ago.

I am confirmed as a program participant for L.A.con IV, the 64th World Science Fiction Convention. I don't know yet what I'll be doing on the program, but I will be at the con in Anaheim all five days, from August 23rd to 27th. I hope you will be too. (A lot of people don't like L.A. much, but I love it, as only someone who moved far away as a young child can.)

As a program participant, I get complimentary memberships for me and my wife. But since I had purchased one before getting added to program, I now have one Worldcon membership for sale. It can be yours for $175, which is exactly what I paid for it.


UPDATE:  The membership is tentatively spoken for. If this changes, I will post about it again.

In a recent Craigslist posting, a dominant male businessman requests a Secretary-like secretary who, in addition to being able to take dictation and a good paddling with equal aplomb, must be discrete.

One presumes that this distinct and differentiated individual will also be discerning and prudent enough to gently inform her new master boss that the word he's looking for is discreet.
