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.
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::
