Readercon starts tomorrow. I will not be there, at least not in person, but my words will be going on my behalf. The latest issue of Sybil’s Garage, which contains my short story, “Under the Leaves” will be making it’s unofficial debut at Readercon. If you do happen to be going, you should pick up one of the limited number of copies that will be available. Editor Matt Kressel has been working incredibly hard to get issue #7 ready in time, and though I won’t tell you the TOC (it hasn’t officially been announced yet), I can tell you that it is awesome. The issue will have it’s official debut on July 21st as part of the KBG Fantastic Fiction Reading Series. I’m also not going to be there, though I really wish I was. To make up for all the places I’m not going to be, I will be at Victory Brewery this weekend with an awesome bunch of writer-type folks, sucking back Golden Monkeys, so that makes it okay.
In other, news, the high today was 101; yesterday it was 103. I currently hate the sun, and want to block it from the sky. It makes everything feel like suffocation and burning, leading to the inevitable Sneaky Hate Spiral. Or, in some cases, the not-so-sneaky full-on rage spike. I don’t deal well with heat. The only antidote is lots of air conditioning, and heat-related humor. So please enjoy this Penny Arcade strip, and this wonderful clip from Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. Topeka…is…hot.
