News & Updates

Ancient Ages on Nam Radio

April 12, 2021

Good news! Nam Radio put my song, Ancient Ages, in the rotation for their stations. The song gets play if it gets requests. If folks wouldn’t mind putting in a request, that would help a lot. Here is the info from them:

“Step 1: Click
Step 2: Click on Request a song on the player.
Step 3: Search for the song Ancient Ages.
Step 4: Click on the Request button next to the song.
Step 5: Listen to the radio.

The more requests a song gets, the higher it moves up on the queue list and the sooner it will play.To avoid spamming, listeners can only request the same song twice every 60 minutes from the same device.”


Catherine again: The YouTube video isn’t getting many views or likes any more. If you feel so inclined to go over and like the video, it would be much appreciated. Here it is:

Many thanks!

My Leprecon Schedule, Sunday March 21, 2021

March 21, 2021

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.

Free registration

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! ?

Chemists writing science fiction

March 2, 2021

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.

My Boskone 58 Schedule

February 12, 2021

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.

Friday night (tonight) 9:30 pm EST, Feb 12, 2021 (1 hour):

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.
