On Saturday the 9th, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America held a remote New Year’s party for members and Nebula Conference attendees aboard the Airship Nebula, with its usual plethora of activities and rooms. I visited Charlie Jane Anders’ Underground Dance Party (where I danced with a muppet); Hoppin’ John’s Diner with chef advisor Addison Sim, where I prepped my marmalade preserves and Curtis Chen showed up as a kitten; and I sang Peter Gabriel’s Sledgehammer in Jesse Rauch’s Karaoke parlor. People found me in the Airlock and the Coat Closet, and I hid by myself in the Boudoir.
I shared the Reading Room with Patricia Jackson, David D. Levine, Keyan Bowes, M.A. Carrick and others, where I read my most recent serialized chapter section, 41 from Bones of Starlight: Greater Beyond.
