Context 20 this weekend

I'll be at the Context 20 convention in Columbus this weekend. Context is a small convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy literature. I've signed up for the "World-Building Workshop"with Timons Esaias and the "Plotting The Novel" seminar with Tim Powers. At last year's convention I conducted an interview with Mike Resnick, who will be back this year as the Editor Guest of Honor. Resnick is a really nice guy and a great writer. If anyone hasn't read Santiago: A Myth of the Far Future or Kirinyaga: A Fable of Utopia, surf over to your favorite online bookstore immediately and order them.

In other news, Steve Buchheit mentioned on his blog my science fiction story "Rumspringa," which was recently published in Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show. Glad to know there are other SF/F writers paying homage to the Amish. Buchheit also liked my interview with Tobias Buckell.
