Context 24 Schedule and Premiere of Never Never Stories

I'm a participating author at this weekend's Context 24 convention in Columbus, Ohio. This is a great little con focused on literary SF, fantasy and horror.

My one panel will be on Saturday at 3 pm where Matt Cook and I will discuss "The Inside Scoop on Black Static and Interzone." Here's the panel copy:

The ground-breaking British magazines Black Static and Interzone, both published by TTA Press, rank among the most influential horror and SF/F publications in the world. Learn why readers, reviewers and the Year's Best anthologies pay special attention to stories published in these magazines and why TTA Press is receptive to new writers whose fiction doesn't fit in with traditional American genre magazines. The panel will discuss the types of fiction the TTA Press editors look for, showcase samples of these magazines, submission tips, and much more.

Book Premiere Party

On Friday night WriteShop, a writing group I've been a part of for several years, will host at 10th Anniversary Gala at the convention, with this party also conveniently doubling as the premiere for my collection Never Never Stories. The party will run from 7:30 p.m. to midnight on August 26, in the Pickaway and Fairfield rooms of the Doubletree Hotel.  There will be munchies, a cash bar, book giveaways, and many copies of Never Never Stories.

If you'd like a signed copy of my collection, please stop by the party. And if you're attending Context, please say hello if you see me wandering the halls.
