August is nearly here, and with it is the return to con season. While I’ve participated in my local con virtually the last two years, I’ve decided to bite the bullet and return to in-person conventions. This all made more sense when I put my name in for programming earlier in the year than it does now with the recent increase in Covid and monkeypox cases throughout the country, but since I’m vaxxed and boosted and plan to mask the entire time (even when paneling), I’m going to honor my commitments.
First up is Armadillocon in Austin, Texas, August 5th through the 7th.
Fri 5:00 PM – “Chek Lonescrum: The Art of Making Fantastical Character Names”
Sat 2:00 PM – “Cross-Genre Capers”
Sat 3:00 PM – “Are We Too Late for Climate Fiction”
Sat 5:00 PM – Reading
Sun 11:00 AM – Signing Session
Then at the end of the month, August 26-28, it is time once again for New Mexico’s Bubonicon.
Sat 10:00 AM – “Hell or High Water: The Rise of Climate Fiction”
Sat 1:30 PM – “Cheese Magnet Tribute: What I learned from John Jos. Miller”
Sat 3:00 PM – “Practical Telepathy: The Science and Appeal of Mind-to-Mind Communication”
Sat 4:25 PM – Mass Autographing Session
If you choose to come out in Austin or Albuquerque, I’d love the chance to say hi. Stay cool and stay safe out there!
