You may have noticed a new con in the sidebar. Madicon 22 has invited me to be a guest along with longtime buds (and great writers!) Jana Oliver, Tee Morris and Pip Ballantine, as well as friends-to-be Jonah Knight, Megan Amberly and R.S. Belcher. The dates to remember are March 8-10, 2013. The place is James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
For the here and now–or the hear and now, if you insist–I read a selection from “Lord Bai and the Magic Pirate” in this month’s BroadPod, the Rapid Fire Reading of the air sponsored by Broad Universe. I’ve read bits and pieces from this story before, but never this section.
I’ve also posted the opening of “Burning Down the House”, my story in Hellfire Lounge 3: Jinn Rummy. If you put it together with the excerpt here, you can get a real taste of the tale. Yes, that was another bad pun, but you’ll have to read the excerpts to find out why. Enjoy!
