Well, yesterday was a terrible day. Here's a good info post on the Orlando shooting, and it also includes ways to help and donate.

Catherine Lundoff has reposted her series on LGBT SF and F through the years: Before 1970, In the 70s, In the 80s, In the 90s, 2000-2010 Part 1, and 2000-2010 Part 2

Saturday I spent the day at a friend's house on an ongoing project to sort and unpack and declutter, and again we made huge progress. Sunday I worked on the novella I'm writing.

Later this week is Comicpalooza in Houston, on June 17-19, which is one of my favorite new cons. It's a comiccon, with actors and media guests, and a huge dealer's room and artist's alley plus a small makerfaire, but it also has a full schedule of literary and writing panels (like 50 of them) and a large number of writer guests.

My panel schedule:

- Friday 11:30 to 12:30 Outlandish Others: How Genre Fiction Employs Androids, Elves, and other non-human Races
Carrie Patel, Tex Thompson, Donna Grant, Martha Wells

- Friday 2:30 to 3:30 Young Adult Fantasy
Joy Preble, J.L. Clark, Katherine Catmull, Angela Holder, Martha Wells

- Saturday 11:00 to 12:00 Plotting and Pacing a Short Story
Ken Liu, Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam, C. Stuart Hardwick, Martha Wells

- NEW: Saturday 1:00 to 2:00 Signing at the Barnes and Noble Booth in the Dealers Room
Last year it was in the artists alley, next to the celeb signing area. Hopefully they'll have copes of The Edge of Worlds

conventions, comicpalooza
