For those going to NASFiC, the North American Science Fiction Convention at Detroit later this month (cf. June 27, March 24), also known this year as DETCON1, it looks like I’ll be on two panels plus several other events including a mass Friday evening Meet the Authors and Autograph Session at 8 p.m.  This is the convention put on in lieu of WorldCon in years the latter is held overseas to give fans who can’t afford the passage a more local destination to go to.  But, ah, to get to Detroit from Indianapolis, the nearest airport to where I am — so near and yet so far! — that may be a story in itself.  Suffice, for now, to say that the cheapest airfare is via Atlanta and takes at least four hours airport to airport.

So how I will get there may be revealed later.  But once I am in Detroit, look for me on the Friday program at 11 a.m. where I and two other authors, Laura Bickle and Cath Schaff-Stump, will be sharing the hour to do a reading, followed for me by a 12 noon panel on “Maps in Fantasy.”  Then on Saturday I have a panel on “The Darker Side of Science Fiction and Fantasy” at 12 noon while, for those who’ve signed up at the convention information desk beforehand, there will be a Kaffeeklatsch starring me at 2 p.m.  So be sure to sign up — I don’t much fancy sitting around talking to myself  — but also, if we’re lucky, there may even be free coffee (but probably not French roast and beignets).  And, yes, that last is an inside joke, but all may be explained then if you ask, as well as how I really got to Detroit, as well as the latest in intimate facts about THE TEARS OF ISIS.

Who would want to miss that?

Also a short note from Adele Wearing of Fox Spirit Books concerning THE GIRL AT THE END OF THE WORLD arrived Sunday with a proof copy of Volume 2.  My story, “The Borrowed Man” (cf. June 24, et al.) is actually in Volume 1 so the proof was mostly just sent as a preview, but the news to be added is that, as of now, the expected release date for Volume 1 will be July 15.
