Launch Pad! Nebulas! I’m going to places to do things!

Let’s not bury the lede, as we say in the news biz: I’ve been accepted to the Launch Pad Astronomy Workshop this June in beautiful Laramie, Wyoming!

This is an incredible opportunity to really drill down on all things astronomical with some of the best and brightest astronomers around, and I’m humbled and stoked (humble-stoked) to have been accepted. As I weigh the various projects I want to do post-MAJESTIC-12, I have no doubt this workshop will inspire all kinds of neat ideas. Plus, I get to hang out with my fellow SF/F scribes, which is always a pleasure.

And speaking of my tribe, I’ll be heading to Pittsburgh next month to attend the SFWA Nebula Weekend conference and awards. I’m primarily going to learn and network and geek out over stuff, but I’ll be participating in the mass autograph signing, and they’ll have copies of both the Daedalus trilogy and MJ-12: Inception on sale at the venue. The signing is Friday, May 19, at 8 p.m. at the Marriott City Center in downtown Pittsburgh — if you’re around, come say hello!

Sadly, I won’t be attending Phoenix Comicon this year. PHXCC remains one of my favorite cons, and always attracts a great crowd of writers and fans. But I’ve got a full plate of stuff to write and a busy day-job on top of that, so no Taco Guild for me this time around. Don’t worry, though — I plan to be back there eventually!
