This summer has been a busy one. In June, I went to the Atlanta Queer Literary Festival, where I represented Lethe Press on a couple of panels. In July, I went to Readercon, outside of Boston, for the first time as a panelist, where I spoke about Geoff Ryman’s fiction, and sat on a panel about postcolonialism in speculative fiction. And finally, last week, was the first annual Outwrite Book Festival in my hometown. Steve Berman came down with books and other goodies. I met many people, readers, authors and editors and got energized to write again.
Speaking of which, I have a couple of ‘gigs’ (i.e., invitations to submit), so I’d better start working on some of them!
All of these literary travels inspired me to grab a book or two as souvenirs….
