It’s a glorious day here in Canada’s adorable capital city. The air is clean, the sun is out, the leaves are set to turn into autumnal confetti. It’s with great pleasure that I look forward to appearing this weekend at Ottawa’s Conference on Canadian Content in Speculative Arts and Literature, a brisk walk from Timberhouse. I’ll be discussing Myths You’ve Never Heard Of. I’ll be reading a part in a play by local writer Hayden Trenholm. I’ll be at the launch for 49th Parallels, an anthology that explores potential Canadian alternative realities (and includes my story “As Mistress Wishes“). I’ll be giving blue pencil crits and kicking around and shooting the shit and generally having a decent time. If you’re nearby, I hope you’ll come say hello.
Hanging out at Norwescon this weekend outside lovely Seattle, Washington? Would love any and all to join me for my reading Saturday at 1:30 in the Cascade 1 room at the Doubletree hotel.
If you can’t make that but will be around Sunday 10 AM-11 AM , drop by the “Stranger than Fiction”panel to hear me gab with Cat Rambo, Jason Vanhee, Ann Shilling, & Grant T. Riddell in Evergreen rooms 3&4, or catch me discussing Standards of Beauty in Secondary Worlds Sunday 11 AM- noon in Cascade 13 with Rhiannon Held, Nathan Crowder, David J. Peterson, & Sar Surmick.
