RT Booklovers Convention Schedule + Human Division Review in RT

Tomorrow I am on yet another plane, to yet another exotic location — this time, mysterious Kansas City! Which is not (mostly) in Kansas! I know, right? I will be there for the RT Booklovers Convention, which I expect to be a ton of fun, frankly. Here’s my schedule:


8:30pm: RT’s 30th Anniversary Formal Ball. I will be wearing pants, y’all.


1:15pm: RT Book Reviews Awards Ceremony. I shall also wear pants for this! It’s a pattern!

5:00pm: Panel — How SF Seduces Your Mind and Heart. Because it does. Often with a Tribble. Other panelists: Stacey Kade, Janet Miller (aka Cricket Starr), Beth Revis, PJ Schnyder, Sarah Zettel.


10:30am – 2:00pm: Giant Book Fair. Rumor has it this will be large. Also, it is the portion of the event open to the public (there is an entrance fee), so if you’re in the KC area and want a book signed, this is when to do it.

6:30pmFAN-Tastic Day Party. I show up to be ogled and adored. As it should be.

If you’re going, see you there. If you are not going, then try to have a nice weekend anyway, okay?

Also, while we’re on the subject of RT Book Reviews, The Human Division is the magazine’s Top Science Fiction Pick for May. w00t! The review is here, and this is the blurb from it: “[A]n immensely entertaining novel… Scalzi’s talent and humor really come through in this story, which will be enjoyed by fans of the series as well as new readers.” Can’t complain about that.

By John Scalzi

I enjoy pie.

Note, however, that he did not proclaim that he would be wearing pants on Saturday. He’s ruled out a kilt; perhaps an evening gown? A Speedo? Inquiring minds shy away!

Welcome to Lovely KC, sorry the weather sucks today. You should eat some gret BBQ while you are in town, then write about it….(food blog I guess). Which BBQ do you think is better….1.) Arthur Bryant’s BBQ. 2) Jack Stack BBQ or 3) Gates BBQ….all are absolute staples of the KC BBQ scene. (bias alert, I like Jack Stack BBQ the best)

You missed the panel captain for Seduced by the Unknown – How SF Challenges Your Mind and Heart: Linnea Sinclair. She’s one of my favorite authors, including a book with a wonderful Big Idea: what if you accidentally traveled to the future and found out that they’d made you a Goddess.
