It’s been officially announced, so I can now announce it here: I’m going to be the International Author Guest of Honor for the 2011 edition of SFContario, Canada’s newest science fiction convention (it just wrapped up its first edition yesterday). Joining me in Guest of Honor-dom will be the excellent Karl Schroeder (Canadian Author Guest of Honor), David Langford (Fan GoH), Gardner Dozois (Editor GoH) and Toyboat (Filk GoH). The convention will take place November 18-20, 2011, at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Toronto. I’ve added it to my “Scheduled Appearances” page.
As a side note regarding the “Scheduled Appearances” page, I’ll note that in the next month or so I’ll be filling it out more completely, but that my 2011 is in flux at the moment pending more information coming my way. The back of my Fuzzy Nation ARC tells me I’ll be having a tour of some sort, for example, but at the moment I’m not sure when (I suspect sometime in May/June) or where. Likewise, there’s a very good chance I’ll be going on my first international tour in 2011, but again the details of that one are very much in the air (but if it does happen, will be in the last quarter of the year). As soon as I lock everything down I’ll be posting the information here, trust me.
But no matter what, I’ll definitely be in Toronto in November 2011. And I’m very much looking forward to it. Hope to see you there, too.
