World Fantasy 2011

Heading off tomorrow, on Launch Day — I’m launching from the ground and flying to San Diego! GET IT? Launching — um, yeah, OK. Anyway, while I’m there I’ll be doing a little of this and a little of that. Friday: 8:00 PM: I’ll be at the mass autographing. Saturday, 11:30 AM: Reading from The […]

Party planning

I’m having a party at World Fantasy this year, because The Kingdom of Gods launches that very weekend. Got a suite already reserved, planning a theme — a slumber/pajama party, since that’s something Sieh would love — and ordering party favors. I’m going to have badge ribbons, among other things, so that people who come […]

Reading outside the lines

Just flew in from Reno, and boy are — ::slaps self:: Sorry. Punchy from the jetlag, hangover, sleeping on airplanes, and oxygen deprivation. Just got back from Worldcon, which was in the quite lovely town of Reno, Nevada. Unfortunately it was in an unlovely series of spread-out, smoke-filled, noisy-with-many-blinky-lights casino hotels, which I might’ve enjoyed […]

Think Galacticon

Just recovering from a whirlwind weekend in Chicago for Think Galacticon 3, a self-described radical leftist science fiction con, for which I was one of this year’s Notable Guests. (The other was community organizer, activist, and all-around cool chica Adrienne Maree Brown. Y’know how you get that instant “friend” vibe from someone? Yeah, that was […]

Curious Cabinets, Steampunk Mammoths, and Galactic Thinking

Stuff happening in Noraland lately: -The Thackery T Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities is almost out! This unusual anthology furthers the mythos of the good professor, which some may recall having visited before. There’s work in this one by China Mieville, Minister Faust, Charles Yu, and many, many more — and of course, Yours Truly. Preorder […]

So What’s Next?

This weekend I finished the Dreamblood books. Yes, both of them at once. Yes, it was hard as all get out and this is why I’ve been relatively quiet for the last few months. It’s been worse for my friends and family, if you’re wondering — I’ve been shutting off my phone on the weekends, […]

Think Galacticon Notable Guest!

Checking off another on my list of authorly accomplishments — I’m going to be this year’s Notable Guest at Think Galacticon! I’ve never been to Think Galacticon, but it looks like my kind of con. And it’s in Chi-town, which is my kind of town. Hope to see ya’ll there!

Keeping Up (Guest) Appearances

Do you love me? Do you really love me? Well, that’s good, because I’m going to be all over the place in the next couple of weeks. Tonight, for example, I will be on the inimitable radio show Hour of the Wolf, hosted by the equally inimitable Jim Freund. You can either tune in, if […]

What Fantasy Writers Do On Vacation

Apologies for not yet getting my London pics online; between Launch Week and life stuff I haven’t had time to edit and optimize. I’m not much of a picture taker, to be honest, and I tend to not do much with photos when I do take them. The visual fascinates me far less than the […]
