Hi all –
I sent a little notice to the WotF blog the other day about the Writers of the Future panel that we’ll be having at Ad Astra in just over a month from now. You can see the post here (as well as pictures of Volume 21 and 22 book signings by fellow Canadian participants Mike Rimar and Sarah Totton).
Hopefully, if anyone is interested in the contest and is within travelling distance of Toronto, this will get them out to Ad Astra–which promises to be a lot of fun! In addition to the WotF panel, there are a number of great panels planned. You can find the list of planned Ad Astra events here.
And it looks like they’ve added Cory Doctorow as one of the Guests of Honour (a GoH, fyi 🙂 He’s a really interesting cat (you may know him from his posts on BoingBoing), and it would be cool to meet him and hear him speak on issues like Creative Commons licences (as I mentioned the other day.) It would also be good to meet him because he’s currently considering my story “Citius, Altius, Fortius” for Tesseracts 11.
Never hurts to butter up an editor…take it from an editor 🙂
The Writers of the Future people also sent along a request for a 200-word bio for inclusion with my story in Volume 23 (out later this year). I’ll have to put some thought to that soon…
