Poisoned Pen Signing – Pics and Video Link

Connie Willis & Laurie R. King

Connie & Laurie Again

Friday night, October 29th, at the Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale, Arizona,  was the end of the main leg of the All Clear tour and Connie was joined by author and fan Laurie R. King for her talk.  The evening was themed “A Night at the Pub” and there were chips, a keg, and some fog.  The Poisoned Pen did a video broadcast of the talk and you can go to it from the embedded link at the end of the post or directly here. Note: it is recommended that you watch several ads at the start so that you can watch the who thing without interruptions.  The start of the talk had some problems with the microphones.  Once they stop using them, the audio is fine.

Oxford Time Travel Guide now available

I’ve put together a guide to the Oxford Time Travel stories as a separate page here on the Blog.  So, if you are confused about what stories are part of this group, here’s a good place to start. 

It also includes a link to an online copy of the short story Fire Watch as well as a link to an audio dramatization of it.  Since the events in the short story are referenced in All Clear, it might be good to refresh your memory with a quick read or listen to the short story that started it all.

CapClave 2010 Reports and Pictures

There’s a good number of blogs from attendees at CapClave 2010 last weekend that talk about Connie’s panels, and thanks to Neil Ottenstein, we have some pictures as well.

Karen Weston Newton has a Connie-Con Recap at her Specificlly Spec Fic blog.

Jamie Todd Rubin has a Capclave 2010 Report on his blog.

Alisa Krasnostein of Twelfth Planet Press had daily reports of the convention on her GirlieJones Blog.  Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3.  She also posted book reviews of Fire Watch and Remake that she picked up at the convention.  She’s visiting from Austrailia and her other posts are worth checking out as well, including upcoming reports on the 2010 World Fantasy Convention happening this weekend.

The limited edition of Fire Watch published by WSFA Press at Capclave  is available to order from the WSFA Press website.

Now for some pictures:

Welcome to the New Blog

With the release of All Clear, I’m moving the blog to a locally hosted wordpress site from the existing site.  I’ve been unsuccessful in moving the old posts over here, so a link to the old blog site will be maintained with occasional updates there to send people here.  Look for more updates in the next few days as the tour gets started.
