Ethics in SF

There is a particularly interesting interview with Adrinn Dembo about Ethics in SF over at Reality Skimming. Check it out.

WWC report

I’m back from When Words Collide. It was a wonderful convention. I loved It! Randy McCharles and his team did an amazing job putting this event together. Bravo, guys!

Here are some of the highlights: Turning History into Fiction with panelists Krista Ball, Ron Freidman, Barb Galler-Smith, Derryl Murphy, Tim Reynolds and Jack Whyte. This was the panel I found the most interesting.

The EDGE party was super fun. Everybody got to wear feather boas and drink giggle juice.

My favorite panel/round table was Writing In English…as a Second Language with Marie Bilodeau, Harold Cardona, Ann Cooney, Ron Freidman, Neil Godbout and me. It was downright cathartic. So much so in fact, we all agreed to do it again next year.

But I think the most amazing moment of the con was when Jake Whyte sang The Hippopotamus Song at the Dead Dog. AWESOME!

The weekend was capped off with a tour of the Royal Tyrell Museum with Robert J. Sawyer as guide. How cool is that! :)

WWC, here I come

I’m leaving for When Words Collide, Calgary’s new science fiction and fantasy convention, early tomorrow morning. I’m going with a group of friends and authors, so it’s going to be fun. Expect my next post to contain a detailed account of the Con, and, yes, there will be pictures too.

Done and done

I’m super happy because I’ve finally finished prepping The Digging Crew for its re-release this fall. All I’m missing is the cover. What this means for me is that besides doing some promotion for Death in the Traveling City, I can now concentrate most of my time on the creative side of writing. Woo hoo! I wonder how hard it’s going to be to re-immerse myself into BV, my long-neglected urban fantasy. I would love to remain optimistic about it, but sadly, I foresee difficulties. We’ll see.
