Okay, it has been a while. I’ve been busy. I have two novels in the works, which will take up most of my free time this year, but that’s no excuse to ignore everything else.
So first off, an upcoming event.
At the Missouri Regional Library on April 29th, 7:00 PM, Professor Tom Dillingham and I will be doing a presentation on the value of science fiction. What Science Fiction Can Teach Us will be a discussion of the potential scholastic, edifying, and just plain useful aspects of SF. This is the talk that would have happened back in February had the Second Ice Age not threatened glaciation. This should be a fun evening. Tom is a delight and I sort of know a thing or two about the subject.
So—April 29th, 7:00 PM, Missouri Regional Library, 214 Adams Street, Jefferson City, Missouri, 2nd Floor.
Also, hopefully, fingers crossed, the short story collection will be out in mid to late May. We’re going to do a release party at Left Bank Books, the specific date still a bit up in the air, but either the 14th or the 21st. I will let the world know when I know.
I’m changing the night of the reading group I moderate at Left Bank Books to the first Thursday of each month, starting May 1st. The title at hand is Ursula K. Le Guin’s The Left Hand of Darkness, which is available at Left Bank Books now at 20% off, so for all you local folks, go get a copy, support your local independent bookstore, and consider attending the meeting. Thursday evenings, 7:00 PM.
No doubt there is more and I will get to it as soon as I remember what it is. For now, have a good weekend.
