My guest blog post on putting the epic into modern-day fantasy is up at Black Gate. http://www.blackgate.com/2014/10/17/putting-the-epic-into-the-modern-day-fantasy/
On Sat. Oct. 18, I’ll be one of the authors at the DC Author Festival. I’ll be there for the whole event (breaking for lunch and such), but my reading (nicely highlighted by the event) should be at 3:30. http://dclibrary.org/DCAuthorFest (Also, a reminder that I’m at Capclave this weekend.)
Capclave, the DC-area science fiction convention, is this coming weekend. My schedule:
Saturday 3:30: Reading (probably from book 2 of American Craftsmen)
Fri 3:30 pm: “Holy Shuftik!” he cried.
