Punk in Science Fiction and Fantasy

| April 16, 2018

At Norwescon, I spoke on a panel about punk in science fiction and fantasy. At first, I was pretty sure that I didn’t have very much to say on the subject, especially in comparison to my co-panelists. But it wound up being a great conversation about punk music, the punk aesthetic, and the many, many […]

Norwescon General Recap

| April 9, 2018

Easter weekend in Seattle always means Norwescon to me! I attended a little bit sporadically the first few years I was in Seattle, but now I pretty much go every year.

I’ve been attending this convention most years since I moved to Seattle, where I’ve sold crafts, books, some combination of the two, and done some of the Broad Universe Rapid Fire Readings. And a lot of cosplay. But this year, I’ll be sitting on panels as […]

Norwescon!

| March 24, 2015

Norwescon schedules have begun popping up. I figured I’d add mine to the mix. On Friday, I will be in the dealer’s room, helping out my friend Friday by selling tea at her booth (Friday Afternoon) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (with a short break to go listen to Jeremy read at 10:30 a.m.). […]
