And part of today's obligations for me is to mention a few things that have slipped past me in the last couple of days. First up, there's a great new Wild Cards story, this time by Cherie Priest, up at the Tor website, 'The Button Man and the Murder Tree'. And it's illustrated by John Picacio. I think my new WC story is probably the next in line. I'll yell when it appears.
Secondly, the 2013 Hugo Voter Packet has arrived. It contains DRM-free e-book versions of all five of this year's Hugo Award-nominated novels, all the Graphic Story entries (including the complete first volume of Saucer Country), all the short fiction, all the Related Works (including two Chicks Dig titles) and a whole bunch of fanzines, art, podcast links, etc. A supporting membership to this year's Worldcon gets you all that, and Hugo voting rights, for just $60. It's never been a better time to get involved with the Hugos. Especially since this time I'm hosting them.
Thirdly, a number of friends of mine involved with the forthcoming Queers Dig Time Lords are interviewed on the latest Two Minute Time Lord podcast (it's longer than two minutes!) It's long past time for this book, and the team are fun to listen to.
And talking of podcasts, Emma Newman has just launched the fabulous Tea and Jeopardy, where an author is interviewed in terrifying circumstances over a cuppa. The latest episode features Sarah Pinborough and my own scary encounter should appear on Friday.
Oh, and here's the wonderful Alan Davis art for Wolverine #8, the first issue of the 'Killable' arc. Which features Logan involved in a rather awkward encounter with the Black Panther... and Storm.
I'm now on Tumblr, which is still a work in process, but there are a few nice images already posted. Do check it out.
At that's that for now. I may see you when I'm wandering about the MCM Expo this weekend. Until then, Cheerio!
