almost ready

Only a couple of minor tasks remain, and then I’ve an appointment with a number of books for the rest of the evening.

I’ve had little to no time to work up new story ideas. I will be in Seattle, however, for a number of days before the workshop so I’ll schedule time with my thinking cap.

Plus, it’s a looooong travel day for me tomorrow. I’ll keep a pen and paper handy.

I’m attending a number of events as part of the Locus Awards and Science Fiction Hall of Fame Weekend, which is being held June 16-18, 2006. It looks like fun.

Finally, horror film aficionados should note that weekend passes for FrightFest, the UK’s premier horror film festival, go on sale on July 1. The initial line-up of films has been announced, and as usual it looks like it will be buttock endurance test if you want to watch everything on offer.

I’m already looking forward to my weekend of gore in London (I’ll have just enough time to recover from Clarion).
