I have two events today at Leprecon.
Reading: Sunday, March 21, 11-11:30 EDT (8-8:30 Arizona time)
Panel, The Future of Space: Sunday, March 21, 1:00-2:00 pm (10:00-11:00 am Arizona). Gregory Benford, David Brin & Catherine Asaro discuss the future of the space program.
Sorry for the late notice: this was somewhat last minute! I hope folks get this in time to come. I don’t know if I’ll have anyone at my reading this morning. Although it’s 11 am for me, which isn’t bad, it’s 8am for people in Arizona, which is where the con is located. Who at a convention gets up that early on a Sunday morning! 😀

Jon Evans, an author and essayist, did an article on chemists writing science fiction for Chemistry World, one of the premier science magazines in the UK, published and owned by the Royal Society of Chemistry. He included me as one of the chemists! To read the article, click here.
It looks like it’s paywalled, but it’s not. At the bottom, it has an option for a free subscription if you register with them.

I’m excited! I will be appearing at Boskone this weekend. To see my schedule with details and links to the Zoom panel, click here.
ENTERING THE CYBERSPACE ERA
Friday night (tonight) 9:30 pm EST, Feb 12, 2021 (1 hour):
READING: DAVID BRIN AND CATHERINE ASARO
Saturday night, 7:00 pm EST, Feb 13, 2021 (1 hour)
I’m really looking forward to the con. I was their Hal Clement Science Speaker at Boskone 55, and I’d gone to various Boskone as a panelist in previous years. The nice part about doing cons on virtual platforms instead of in person is that folks like myself can participate from almost anywhere. Yay! I get to see many old friends, and I hope news ones as well.

My eBook publisher likes some of the covers I designed, so they asked if I might do the cover for The City of Cries. I’ve put up all six covers from books that illustrate “The City of Cries” on my Patreon page, and we’re discussing what people like, don’t like, what works, what doesn’t work, and so on. If you are on Patreon, or feel inclined to become one of my patrons, I’d really appreciate your input! Here is the link.
The picture here shows the cover my publisher designed (which I think looks fine). That’s the one they asked if I could consider doing something new.
