My Arisia Conference Schedule & a flash piece

My Prose Poem on The Broadkill Review (very quick read)

With all the crazy distractions lately, I completely forgot that I had a short prose poem go up on The Broadkill Review. It’s one of the many linked short stories in my collection about growing up gay last century.

Arisia Con – January 15 – 18, 2021

I’ll be a panelist next weekend at Arisia Con, New England’s Largest, Most Diverse Sci-Fi & Fantasy Convention. Guests of Honor are: Suzanne Palmer (writer, Finder series), Hannibal King (artist), and Kat Tanaka Okopnik (fan GoH) The lineup looks great so why don’t you join us?

Here is my schedule:

Saturday, January 16th at 4:00 PM – Reading

Three readings from Anne E.G. Nydam, Daniel P. Dern, and Robert R Angell. I’ll be reading from a new work.

Sunday, January 17th at 1:00 PM – Introduction to Birding

Description For people who like birds and want to learn more about observing them. Where and when can I see cool birds in my home area or while traveling? How can I identify them, by sight or by sound? Do I need binoculars or can I just watch? What do I need to know if I want to feed wild birds in my yard? If I find out that a bird I just saw was rare, how can I report it–and are there reasons I should be cautious about reporting? How can I connect with others who are interested in birds?

Sunday, January 17th at 2:30 PM – Gender Diversity in Speculative Fiction

Description Speculative fiction, with its focus on expanding what’s possible, has been exploring the far-from-final frontiers of gender identity for decades. From classics like Octavia Butler’s Lilith’s Brood and Ursula K. Le Guin’s The Left Hand of Darkness to Charlie Jane Anders’ All the Birds in the Sky and Kim Stanley Robinson’s 2312, join in our discussion of fiction by and/or about genderqueer and genderfluid characters.
