This weekend I'm going to be at ArmadilloCon 36 in Austin, Texas. Major guests are: Ian McDonald, Ted Chiang, Jacob Weisman, Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, Sigrid Close, Michael Walsh, and Mario Acevedo.
Here's my schedule. (I'm also one of the teachers for the all day writers' workshop on Friday.) For my reading I'll be doing a section of one of the upcoming Raksura novellas.

The WorldCon is in London in early August, and I really wish I could be there, but I won't, because I just couldn't afford it this year. If you want to angst along with me, you can look at my previous worldcon tag, where I have photos and reports from the WorldCons in San Antonio and Chicago etc. (In the Chicago one, there's a favorite moment where a physicist who insisted he wasn't there helped us fix a tea urn.)
