Stargate in Distance

(no subject)

I had a very good weekend out, except for the heat, augh. It was in the upper 90s, heat index in the 100s. Last night I had a headache so bad I had to get up and 3:00 and wait for the benadryl and the aleve to kick in.

We did go by Murder by the Book and stimulated their economy to the best of our ability. And I found there's a new Benjamin January mystery Dead and Buried by Barbara Hambly! These are set in New Orleans in the 1830s, and they're excellent mysteries. When free black musician and surgeon Benjamin January attends the funeral of a friend, an accident tips the dead man out of his coffin – only to reveal an unexpected inhabitant.

And I got a couple of new Kerry Greenwood Phryne Fisher books. These are set in Australia in the 1920s, about Phryne, a very smart, very kickass, very sexually liberal, and very rich flapper who solves mysteries.

Here's my schedule for ArmadilloCon 32 in Austin, at the Renaissance Hotel, the weekend of the 27-29.

I'll be teaching at the writers workshop all day Friday, but you can find me on Saturday and most of Sunday. If you come by to say hello and I know you from Live Journal, remember to tell me you LJ name.

This schedule is subject to change. Oh, and I'll also be doing the interview for Guest of Honor rachelcaine, which might be Sunday at 2:00, though I'm not sure.
