Book 2 Poem Reading

In this video I posted onto my Readings YouTube playlist, I picked a poem to read from inside Book 2: Abyss Surrounding. “Star Matter Scarabs” is the title of the poem that was being discussed by the Vedani interested in Human poetry. This was read to an audience at Everelse wine bar’s literary & musical open mic in Friday Harbor, WA.

Also: Happy 100th Chapter to Greater Beyond, Book 3.

Norwescon Continues

I’m in full swing at Norwescon 44, a return to the in-person convention. It’s great seeing the familiar Seattle and beyond bunch, with the new faces of course, despite being capped at a lower than usual number.

Atlanta & Beyond

There were some really neat reader and fan experiences to be found at Fandemic Dead in Atlanta, many thanks for the invitation.

And look who’s been seeing this trilogy author here and there! Grogu and his Mandalorian guardian taking an interest; Guy Gilchrist, a creator of Muppet Babies from my youth; and not one, but two Sandman artists, Glenn Fabry & director David Mack. Yes, I am hanging out at La Mole 25 in Mexico City.

Plus, this amazing greeting occurred with THE Cary Elwes. We had ourselves a pandemic-style fistbump.
