LA Times Festival of Books This Weekend!
I’m headed to LA this weekend for the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books! Here’s where you can see me, all on Saturday: 2pm: I’ll be doing a signing at the Mysterious Galaxy booth (#368)! 4:30pm: I’ll be joining Ken Liu, Matthew Reilly, and moderator Todd Zuniga for the panel, “Bringing the Impossible to Life,” in the Annenberg Auditorium. 5:30pm: Another signing! This is, I believe, near the panel itself, which is handy for anyone who likes the shade; the beautiful, beautiful shade. You can get more details at the… Read more »
Pilots, Dolls, Los Angeles, Fairy Tales, Shipping, and Joan: A News Roundup
That is a seriously motley crew of an update, but I’m behind enough on news, so as I dig my way out from under a pile of deadlines, a news roundup it is! (My long fiction update, left over from last week, is that PERSONA is officially out in the world!) * In life/event news, I’ll be at this year’s LA Times Festival of Books! My panel, on Saturday at 4:30, is titled “Bringing the Impossible to Life,” which I honestly hope means Ken Liu, Matthew Reilly, and I will… Read more »
Catching Up and Sleepy Hollow: "Heartless"
This weekend was World Fantasy. I was thinking it was a bit late to talk about it before I realized I never even did a con report for Capclave, back in October. (Short version: It was lovely! Thanks to everyone who made me feel so welcome, and it was awesome talking with everyone.) World Fantasy was also nice, though disproportionately spent escorting people on milkshake runs. Both of them were reminders that I’m remiss in announcing stuff, so expect more of that tomorrow. For now, Sleepy Hollow, which continues the… Read more »
Capclave and Dream Houses
A couple of announcements! First, if I have not announced it already: I’ll be a Guest of Honor at Capclave this October, alongside Holly Black and Paolo Bacigalupi! The convention is the weekend of October 10. When not heckling Holly from the audience of whatever panels she’s doing, I hope to be talking about movies, TV, writing as a day job, and whatever else they decide to ask me and/or I can’t stop talking about. I’ll also have a special project on sale there: my first-ever novella, DREAM HOUSES. It… Read more »
Readercon and a Fiction Update
It’s Friday and I foolishly agreed to let a friend come stay with me, which means I’m screencapping Merlin: Book of Beasts in giant bursts in between desperately trying to cram all my horrible mess into a cartoon closet. Someday soon I will try cataloging some of the Musketeers’ most priceless facial expressions, but today’s not that day. Fiction update instead! First up, amid everyone’s Readercon schedules, this seems as good a time as any to mention I’ll unfortunately be missing Readercon this year due to a family obligation. The… Read more »
A Handful of Newsblips
I’m headed to England this week! I hope to be able to keep up with some of my shows while I’m gone (two weeks without Reign? Say it isn’t so!), but in preparation for my departure, because I will have forgotten all of this by the time I come back, have a little news! I will be heading to Brighton for World Fantasy this weekend. (Brighton will look different than illustrated.) At this point, I’m not sure it’s possible to be more wary of the con itself, which has done… Read more »

    motel-register:

    The Four Aces movie location is a perfect little replica of the 1950s American roadside, complete with a diner, gas station, and, of course, motel. Located in the Californian desert about an hour northeast of Los Angeles, it’s played host to a number of iconic horror films, countless B-movies and forgettable commercial work. 

    Imagine a strange fusion of Stephen Shore and Gregory Crewdson photographs and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what the motel rooms here look like. The entire complex is a built-to-purpose film set, though completed with an admirable eye for detail and atmosphere.

    You might argue that nowadays the Four Aces is just as authentic a place as the remaining roadside motels and diners that dot the North American landscape. Where the latter can’t help but reveal their perilous status — always on the verge of extinction — the former is a living relic, the artificial nature of which somehow makes it more real for the degree that it reveals both the seductiveness and spuriousness of post-war road culture.
