I'll be at Readercon off and on this weekend. Readercon is one of the best conventions for people who really love written SF and are interested in hearing serious discussion of SF as literature. That doesn't mean it's above silliness, mind you. One of the major events is the Kirk Poland Memorial Bad Prose Competition, which is a combination of total silliness and an appreciation of the finer points of style (bad style). If you're in or near the Boston area, check it out (click the link above for more info).
I'm on a panel tonight (Friday) on the Hal's World memorial anthology, a tribute to the late great Hal Clement. I'm autographing Saturday at noon. And moderating a panel Sunday at 1 p.m., called "If This Goes On."
See you there!
