While at the coast, I received word that I have been accepted into the Launch Pad Astronomy Workshop. This is a NASA-funded "crash course" in modern astronomy for SF writers. Copyediting goddess deannahoak, paulwitcover, and the incomparable maryrobinette are also attending.
I also got an email from my mother, who has set up a signing of my collection Space Magic at Panther Bookstore in Milwaukee in May 20, right before Wiscon. Local boy makes good!
