Hey everyone! This afternoon, Aric and I will be hopping a train to Portland, where we’ll be lurking until Saturday morning. Our purpose for this visit is twofold:
- Think Out Loud: Northwest Passages — This marvelous Oregon Public Broadcasting show has invited me to appear on Thursday morning, starting at 9:00 a.m. We’ll be talking steampunk, Boneshaker and the Clockwork Century, costuming, cornball alternate history theories, and what’s with these zombies being all up in our business.
- Friday, at the Powell’s in Beaverton — Starting at 7:00 p.m. I’ll be reading, signing, hanging out and chatting — and answering all your pressing (or not-so-pressing) questions. So come on out and see me! We’ll talk about whatever you want. No, seriously. I can natter on about almost anything. Might not make a whole lot of sense, but that’s never stopped me before …
Anyway, that’s what I’m up to for the next few days. So if posting is light, please bear in mind that I’m taking a whole bunch of work with me and I will not vouch for the persistent availability of internet. As always, there’s Twitter. I’m more likely to update that stream than this one, on account of it’s faster, easier, and I can do it from my phone.
So that’s all the news that’s fit to print at the moment. Thanks for reading, and I hope I’ll see some of you in Portland!
