So thrilled to see Lotus Blue made the Locus Annual Recommended Reading List in the first novel category!
Snapped this lovely creature after I spotted it on the garden path on my way back from burying the compost.
I am spectacularly hopeless at keeping this blog up to date. Meanwhile, the date for submitting my PhD fast approaches…
This year’s Conflux speculative fiction convention was a total blast. Amongst other things, Liz and I launched Ecopunk – speculative tales of radical futures with the aid of an appreciative, cupcake-loving crowd. Photos here, and you can get a copy of the anthology from here!
After Worldcon75 in Helsinki, Rob and I flew to Norway and boarded a Hurtigruten passenger-carrying cargo ship called the Vesteralen to spend a week traveling down the coast. Highly recommended – especially Trollfjorden. Photos here.
Helsinki Worldcon was a total blast. Caught up with old friends, made a bunch of new ones. So many highlights: the fancypants reception at the Town Hall, the Aussie gathering at St Urho’s pub, George RR Martin’s Hugo Losers Party, Helsinki itself, with its classic trams and cobbled streets, Suomenlinna fort… Photos here. Big thanks to Jukka and the team for making it all come together.
