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 »
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 »
Story news first: My technically-a-novelette “Terrain” will be published by Tor.com in the spring! I will have more to say about this story as the date approaches; for now, I’m nervous but pretty stoked.
In audio news, my Tresaultiverse story “Study, for Solo Piano” is up now and available for listening on Podcastle!
This is actually the second time this story has had a life in audio; the first time around was an interpretation by Stefan Rudnicki at Fantasy Magazine, where the story was first published.
Listening to someone… Read more »
I was going to save that title for when I headed to World Fantasy next week. (If, in some impossible stroke of luck, I make it out there in time, I even have a reading at 2pm on Friday! We…will see about that!)
However, given that we will be smack in the middle of Hurricane Sandy at the time I was supposed to be headed up to Toronto, and that things are already looking ominous outside, might as well use it now, since the Channel Flips will be slow in… Read more »
Nearly two months ago, I went public about harassment I experienced at Readercon. Things happened.
The outcome was positive. For this and other reasons, I still think it is crucial to report, if you feel safe doing so, because most harassers are serial, and reporting them is vital to making sure the behavior is named and stopped.
However, for those thinking of going public with their own experiences with con harassment, I want to talk about how it looks nearly two months on.
Because it’s still going, two months on.… Read more »
Because of dollars, I will not be attending Worldcon this year. However, thanks to many people who are awesome, I have an event by proxy, and will have books available!
First! Writer Christopher Rowe, who also happens to be a superlative reader, has agreed to read my horror story “Good Fences” during the Nightmare/Lightspeed reading by John Joseph Adams! It’s your chance to get a sneak peek (the magazine doesn’t launch until October), and also a chance to hear Christopher read, if you haven’t had the pleasure.
The reading is… Read more »
