Happy Presidents Day! (now buy)

I figured Presidents Day might be a good day to remind everyone that I wrote a book about a president. And also to say that you can get a signed copy -- and help support a great, cooperative, community-supporting, independent business -- from Broadway Book Mall. They will gladly ship! Ron and Nina Else of BBM, in conjunction with the Denver Area Science Fiction Association, hosted a panel discussion this last Saturday between myself, Jesse Bullington, and Stephen Graham Jones (moderated with scathing wit by the esteemed Mario Acevedo). It was a blast, despite the fact that I was dead tired and blathered on about my usual socialist nonsense. Seriously, though, it was a great time, and BBM rocks.

Cons and events: 2012

I'll be doing some readings, blabbing on some panels, and attending some conventions this year. Here's what I have lined up so far. Holy crap, it's more than I thought! (If the stars align, I may also try to make one of the following this year: World Horror Convention, Dragon*Con, or Readercon. Fingers crossed...)

February 18: A reading with Jesse Bullington and Stephen Graham Jones at Broadway Book Mall/Who Else Books. (Denver)

March 23-25: Anomaly Con. Among the guests: Ekaterina Sedia and Genevieve Valentine. (Denver)

April 16: A reading during a World Book Night pre-party at Tattered Cover Book Store on Colfax. (Denver)

April 20-22: A reading at Wax Trax Records' 33 1/3 Party. Not sure exactly what day I'll be reading, and it'll probably be next door to Wax Trax at Kilgore Books. (Denver)

June 5: Lighthouse Lit Fest: Writing With a Gun to Your Head, a salon discussion with Julie Kazimer and Mario Acevedo at Lighthouse Writers Workshop. (Denver)

June 15-17: Denver Comic Con and Literary Conference. (Denver)

August 30-September 3: Worldcon 70. (Chicago)
