Ace Comic Con, Locus Awards

This past weekend I met with two excellent fellows in entertainment who each received copies of Bones of Starlight 1 – actor Tom Hiddleston, and director Kevin Smith! A genuine pleasure. With Tom, I’m wearing my author photo jacket (my ‘trail blazer’). I came to see Kevin in my borrowed Locus Awards hawaiian shirt, which is also where the flower lei came from. In the space where he’s holding his arm out, that’s where you can imagine YOURSELF in the picture.

The Locus Awards was a splendid and jolly affair, and was also the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Locus Magazine, a stalwart of science fiction & fantasy critical review.

Out and about in Seattle, I discovered an artwork location of Bones of Starlight cover artist Leo Shallat, and came out (again, as poly-pan-sexual) to celebrate with the Pride Parade.

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.
