SFWA Northwest Reading Series now featuring ME! This week!  
As you may know, the Science Fiction Writers of America have been holding a quarterly reading series at the Kennedy School in Portland. They are also inaugurating a reading series in the Seattle area. See http://www.sfwa.org/for-readers/sfwa-northwest-reading-series/ for more information.

Ted Kosmatka, one of the scheduled readers for this week's readings, has had to drop out due to a death in the family, and I've been asked to step in. So if you'd like to hear me read from my upcoming story "The Last Days of the Kelly Gang" (a steampunk power-armor story set in the Australian Outback in 1880), along with John A. Pitts (Portland and Seattle), Ken Scholes (Portland), and possibly a special guest star (Seattle), you can come to the readings as follows:

Tuesday, January 31
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
McMenamins Kennedy School, 5736 N.E. 33rd Ave. Portland, OR 97211
RSVP (optional) at http://is.gd/cmg5HR

Wednesday, February 1
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Wild Rover Restaurant and Pub, 111 Central Way, Kirkland, WA 98033
RSVP (optional) at http://is.gd/F30Pvi

Both events are free and open to the public. Beer, wine, and other typical bar fare will be available for purchase. Dancing is optional, but not discouraged. Hope to see you there!

P.S. Because of the extremely late notice, I hope that you will help me out by mentioning this reading in your blog, Twitter, Facebook, or Sub-Etha Mental Communicator Stream. Thanks!

Well, crap. I'll be in Seattle Wed. night, but at a Potlatch planning meeting. So I'll miss the reading.

Wish I could come!

Let me look at mass transit there and back; I'd like to hear you read.

Also, perhaps someone from your neighborhood is going and can provide a ride. Would love to see you!

Congratulations! I'm too far out for you, but I hope it goes well.
