That sounds like a parody of “The Rainbow Connection” from The Muppet Movie, doesn’t it?
Norwescon 38 is coming this April! For those of you who don’t know, it’s the Pacific Northwest’s premier science fiction and fantasy convention. What’s more, I’m going to be there as a professional-type-person! I’ll be reading from Zeus Is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient Adventure, signing autographs, and serving on some of the conference panels.
I’m not entirely sure exactly which panels I’ll be on. That’s still being decided. What I can tell you is the reading will be at 1pm on Friday, April 3rd.
Oh, and George R.R. Martin will also be there, along with a bunch of exhibitors, awesome panels, and other professional weirdos just like me! That is, unless Martin slaughters us all. It could happen. The organizers have offered insurance.
It’s April 2nd through the 5th at the SeaTac Doubletree Hotel. Check out the Norwescon site for more conference information, grab some tickets, and come hang out with me and George R.R. Martin!
Norwescon registration closes March 28th!

Set in “an intriguing pre-industrial setting filled with alchemy, guilds, and danger” (to quote my original review), On the Matter of the Red Hand introduces us to a class of detectives guided by an alchemical serum that gives both prophetic visions and waking nightmares.
Wait, am I using that word correctly? *looks up “apace”* Hmm. “With speed?” “Quickly?” Let me start this over:
My writing on A Dragon at the Gate, the third and final book in The New Aeneid Cycle cyberpunk series, proceeds semi-apace! [Read more…]
