- I attended Wiscon 40 and it was GREAT. The three Guest of Honor speeches — Justine Larbalestier, Sofia Samatar, and Nalo Hopkinson — were amazing. I described (elseweb) the experience of listening to them as, “They not only knocked it out of the park, but blew down the bleachers, turned the park into a real green-space park, and renovated the neighborhood without gentrification.”
- Also Wiscon 40: My two panels went really well, and I am grateful to my copanelists and our audiences (SRO for the QueerQuisitor panel) for such a lovely experience. The Broad Universe reading was a little sparse, but only to be expected when we were opposite Nalo Hopkinson’s reading. Still, it was great to meet my fellow Broads.
- This past Monday, I attended the Lambda Literary Award Gala. Wonder City Stories did not win the Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror category, but it was an honor to be listed among such amazing people. Next time, perhaps!
- I have the complete cover art for Ephemera in hand, and Alex Heberling has, as usual, done an amazing job of reading my mind in terms of what the characters look like. Now to plan out the final schedule for the book’s release with my book designer, so I can tell everyone! 🙂
I am on 2 panels and doing one reading at Wiscon 40 this coming weekend. You can also find me at the Broad Universe table, selling Wonder City Stories and other books from other Broads!
