At Capclave This Weekend

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

This weekend, I will be at Capclave, the annual Washington D.C.-area F/SF con (where reading is not extinct!). I’m on three panels, all dealing with short fiction, magazines, or their podcasts:

  • Friday 5:00 pm: Small Press Publishing (including Neil Clarke, Danielle Ackley-Mcphail, Sean Wallace, Ian Randal Strock, Shahid Mahmud)
  • Friday 6:00 pm: From Pod to Page (including Patrick Scaffido)
  • Saturday 5:00 pm: Best Short Fiction of 2014 (including Sarah Pinsker, Norm Sherman, A.C. Wise)

Feel free to say hello if you see me in the halls, or the hall of bar.

To An Author

Saturday, September 27th, 2014

Very sad to hear of the passing of Eugie Foster, who seemed a bright person and insightful writer. She sent me a piece at BCS years ago that was more fable-esque than I prefer; I always hoped she would send more. The same for Jay Lake and Euan Harvey.

I’ve known premature loss multiple times in my family; it never makes any sense. I wish her family, and Jay’s and Euan’s, and Iain Banks’s, and K.D. Wentworth’s, and mine, and everyone else’s who has known this, my best wishes as they continue on.

At Detcon/NASFIC This Weekend

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

This weekend I’m at Detcon1 / NASFIC in downtown Detroit!

I’m on four panels Saturday, including certain-to-be-scintillating discussion of F/SF zines with Neil Clarke and Leah Bobet, F/SF in heavy metal, and F/SF & beer with Michael J DeLuca. Topics all near and dear to me. Come listen to me blather, in panels or in the bar, and feel free to say hello!

Guest Croak on The Drabblecast

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Here’s my dulcet croak guest-narrating a very cool arc-of-a-society sort of story in the new episode of the very cool The Drabblecast: Strange Stories for Strange Listeners podcast. Thanks to editor Norm Sherman for inviting me!
