Locus Awards Seattle


I’ll be present at the awards weekend autographing session on Saturday June 25, 12-12:30pm at the Seattle Center Best Western, with fresh copies of the new paperback and a couple hardcovers all ready to sign.

Other guests include Liz Argall, Greg Bear, Eileen Gunn, Nancy Kress, David D. Levine, Raven Oak, Cat Rambo, Nisi Shawl, Gary K. Wolfe, and Caroline Yoachim.

This is right next to EMP (Star Trek & Wearable Art), Space Needle, and Pacific Science Center.

And if you’re in the mood for words of a different kind, find Kadesh Flow, Shubzilla/Bill Beats & Death*Star at their tour kickoff Saturday 9pm at the Blue Moon Tavern.


Hugo Voting, Also Attending

Maybe I can entice you to vote to honor your favorite achievements in this amazing year of science fiction and fantasy by showing you the member’s ballot.  You too can vote, by having a supporting membership (or more) to this year’s MidAmericon 2, where the Hugo Awards will be held.

This year, Hugos will also be awarded for 1941, when Borges, Heinlein, and Asimov were together in the short story category, and Lovecraft was a fan writer.  Really puts things in perspective.

Further below, see the Also Attending list, featuring this story’s author alongside her friends, childhood heroes, grown-up superstars and bookshelf occupants.  Meanwhile, know that the typewriter is keeping myself and others awake at night.
