Alt.Fiction

A great time had by all, although Adele and the Unbound crew spent most of the day recording the podcasts. Clearly the QUAD was not accustomed to hosting writers as they ran out of both pint glasses and every kind of beer except Stella by Saturday night. Here’s Adele  modeling her new tattoo, a line…

Ada Lovelace Day: Sarah Goode

It’s Ada Lovelace Day again: time to celebrate women in science and technology. Perhaps influenced by all the historical research going on around me, I wanted to find a woman at least as far back as the 19th century, so I decided to focus on Sarah E. Goode, who was not only an early inventor…

Albacon Wrap-up

It was a crazy and fun-filled Albacon this year. Of course one of the most fun parts was having a chance to catch up with the wonderful Liz Hand. Fortunately, I’ll see her the end of the month, too, at the Poe conference at UMass Amherst (no, I don’t have many details to give —…

Pi-Con Bound

Which SF Writer are You?

Fair enough! I am: Samuel R. “Chip” Delany Few have had such broad commercial success with aggressively experimental prose techniques. Which science fiction writer are you?

Albacon & Fall Colors

Ran out to get a hair cut yesterday and decided I needed a little color too, so voil√†: Purple highlights! Thanks, Joy. She’s so good that she matched the color to the jacket I was wearing. We had a short night at Albacon — one panel for me on writing flash fiction. True to form,…

Albacon & Reading

There have been changes in the Albacon schedule, most notably the loss of a GOH, but the show must go on. Here’s my revised schedule: In A Flash: The challenges and rewards of telling a story in under 1,000 words. Mead, Schwabach, Laity, Strock(M) Fri 6:00 PM Beverwyck Why write? It pays badly, you have…
