Sale, convention

Apropos of complaining about reading The Life of St. Teresa of Jesus, I’m pleased to say it was not in vain; I have sold “The Damnation of St. Teresa of Ávila” to the anthology Shared Nightmares, edited by Steve Diamond. I’ll post the TOC and so forth once I have it.

Also, if you’re a Bay Area local, I’ll be at Convolution in Burlingame the weekend of September 26th-28th. My tentative schedule is:

  • Friday 2-4 — You Got Your Science in My Fantasy (M)
  • Saturday 10-12 — Reading
  • Saturday 12-2 — Steaming Outside Victorian England
  • Sunday 12-2 — Social Worldbuilding
  • Sunday 2-4 — Dice on the Page

That last is a panel I proposed, focusing not on who has adapted an RPG into fiction, but what the craft-oriented challenges of doing so are. Not sure what I’m going pick for the reading. Probably a short story, since I rarely get to do those; I’ll have to see what seems good. Not “The Damnation of St. Teresa of Ávila” — there’s no way I’m inflicting sixteenth-century Catholic mystical theology on people at 10 a.m. on a Saturday. 😛

    I can’t make these talks since they’re not in my neck of the woods, but I’d love to know more about what “You Got Your Science in My Fantasy” will cover.

      I’ll try to link once there are actual panel descriptions up on the con website; I don’t have it on hand right now.
