Taboo 3 Reading at Wiscon

I’m not here right now. At the sound of the beep, I will probably be flying over the flyover states, only to stop and land in one of them: Wisconsin, where there will be Wisconnage. Wiscon is probably my favorite SFF convention, with its mix of Deep Social Issues conversation and sheer aesthetically-pleasing silliness: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfume samples, the Dessert Salon’s gustatory glory, the chance to wear shiny things. I only hate that writing work has forced me to withdraw from the Concom; for a con as dynamic as this, I’m happy to roll up my sleeves and work to make it happen.

In any case, I’ll be working through this Wiscon too, doing a bit of self-promotion in the form of a reading. Oh, but what a reading it will be. Check out the flyer, put together by the phenomenal writer M. K. Hobson, who’s pretty handy with the graphic design skillz too.

Taboo 3 flyer: transgressive fiction by me, Vylar Kaftan, Jennifer Pelland, and Rachel Swirsky.  Sunday @ Conference 2, 2:30, at Wiscon.

Since The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms isn’t transgressive enough for these ladies, oh no, I’m going to be reading from my soon-to-be-published-in-Postscripts story, “Sinners, Saints, Dragons, and Haints, in the City Beneath the Still Waters”. A New Orleans story set post Hurricane Katrina, which is particularly apropos given the new disaster happening down there. ::sigh::

If you’re in the Madison vicinity, come check it out!

  1. I read your book and I was thrilled. It was interesting and attention grabbing. I love Sci Fi/Fantasy. When I love something I want everyone to read it and I hope to expose readers to your book! I will always keep an eye out for you because you do tell a very good story. If this is your first novel, then congradulations.
