Off to World Fantasy and Bigfoot and the Bodhisattva

I wanted to drop a quick note here to let you know that I'm going to be at the World Fantasy Convention in Columbus, OH. I've got a reading on Thursday evening, 8 PM. NO idea where but somewhere in the Hotel...

In addition, my reading of James Morrow's wonderful tale, "Bigfoot and the Bodhisattva" has just gone up at the
The Hugo Award-winning StarShipSofa...

Stop Columbus and at the StarShip.

Now off to pack!

A Promo? Really? Yes, a Promo....and more

Needless to say I'm happy about the Hugo win for the Tony C. Smith and all the crewfolk and listeners of the venerable - what is it? Four years old now? - StarShipSofa out of the North of England have become good friends over the past few years that I've been reading my own and other people's stories on their 'casts.

So, this is a pitch for you to go, listen to he current episode, just up this Wednesday, October 20, 2010, and then go buy the book. I've got a tale in it, yes, yes...but the real reason I'm urging purchase of StarShipSofa Stories, Volume 2 is that it's really good science fiction/fantasy stuff! Damn good stuff. So...go. Listen. Then go buy. And subscribe. It's free. And for your time you'll be entertained, amused, informed and thrilled! Then go to the forum, sign up and become a Sofanaut.

Well? What are you waiting for?

Oh! And while you're there, listen to Matthew Sanborn Smith's "FICTION CRAWLER" editorial. He cites a passel of great audio listening sites, not the least of which is the Old Towne Book and Tea Company's podcast of Chapter 2 from my book, JUST NORTH OF NOWHERE. The chapter is "The Strega Cristobel and the Old Rattler Ken."

Hope you like it. Hope you love it. Hope you'll buy it.
