Just a note for all the folks out there who will be in Detroit for this week’s DetCon, I’ll be doing a couple pieces of programming–both Friday. If you’re in the zone, stop in and say hey!
Friday – 10:00AM: Reading (with Stephen Leigh)
I’m still in the mode of deciding exactly what I’m going to read, but I expect It’ll be a story titled “Fraternization,” which is soon to be published in the remarkably cool Fiction River Pulse Pounders anthology. I’ll give it a test read tomorrow before I make it final…but, man-o-man that’s going to be a kick-ass anthology.
Friday – 4:00PM: Who Lives & How (Peter Halasz, Melanie White, Laurie Gailunas, Cliff Winnig, Gregory Gadow)
