catching up with some links

August 5, 2020

It’s been a busy couple of weeks around here! Let’s see what we’ve got:

The August issue of Lightspeed includes my review of the Amazon Prime show Upload.  And also a reprint of my gender-flipped fairy tale retelling, “The Huntsman and the Beast.”  My pieces go live later in the month, or you can buy the whole issue right now.

I had a conversation with the Writers Drinking Coffee podcast.

And here’s a written interview with the Los Angeles Public Library.

Virtual Worldcon went well, I think. Technical glitches were to be expected, and I think I should probably get myself a new webcam. But each of my panels had 100+ virtual attendees, which seems huge to me! The convention also had a Discord channel, where people could go after each panel to chat, and where we could pop in on virtual bars and consuites. I got to video chat with some of the folks I’d normally see at a convention, and that was really nice. I came out of it with the same to-be-read list I usually leave a convention with.

An online convention is better than no convention at all, and the current video chat and webinar technology makes it all surprisingly doable. Which is good, because I have two more virtual conventions this year — MileHi Con and Capclave have both moved online.

Maybe I’ll “see” you there!

    I finally had to get a webcam for a major project despite dragging my heels on the matter for months. I am now using a Logitech C920. Sigh. (I miss in-person meetings…)
