This year I am once again in Portales, NM, the cultural capital of the Llano Estecado, for the Jack Williamson Lectureship.  The usual gang of fun-lovers is here, including Connie, Courtney, and Cordelia Willis, Toolbox survivors Sheila Hartney and Lauren Teffeau, Emily Mah, Sarena Ulibarri, and many others.

Cordelia, who works in a crime lab in California, gave a talk this afternoon about DNA genealogy, which had me wishing I was a crime fiction writer, just so I could use all the cool information.

Stay tuned.  See you after the weekend.

You’ve done historical fiction, comedies of manners, disasters, cyberpunk, posthuman, space opera, but you’re drawing the line at crime fiction? Write it, I’ll buy it!

@Jason The murder subplot of Conventions of War was better than easily 80% of the recent murder mystery novels I’ve read. Then there’s TINAG, which was pure awesomeness.

City on Fire is out on Audible! Yaaayyyyy!!!! Bought it!

Have you ever written a short story set in this world? Any plans to revisit it?

Anon, I’m always hoping to find a market for the third book. I’ve run into an editor that wants to do it, but right now I’m tied up with other things. So here’s hoping that his interest will remain.
