A head’s up for folks about the next week:
One, next week I’ll be teaching at Clarion and thus may not be as updaterific here as I usually am on account of being busy
gleefully crushing the tender souls of neophyte writers BWA HA HA HAH HA humbly being the instrument of instruction for the next generation of science fiction and fantasy authors. I’m thinking of canning some posts and of course there will be some Big Idea pieces, etc, so there will be stuff here. But in case I slack off because I have, you know, real world responsibilities to people who paid money to learn from me, you now know why.
Two, a reminder to San Diegans and other Southern Californians that I will be making an appearance at Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore on Wednesday, July 6 at 7pm for an evening of fun, science fiction and haruspicy! That’s right, bring your ritual animals for sacrifice and I’ll forecast your future from the entrails right there! People in the first three rows remember to bring a tarp, because you will get wet.
(Note: No actual haruspicy will take place. It’s messy. And kind of mean.)
In all seriousness, it will be fun and you should totally come. And bring a friend. Bring two. Heck, bring everyone. In your trunk if necessary.
Three, the ten day forecast for San Diego is sunny and in the mid-70s. Dear San Diego: I love you.
