Westercon 69 (Science Fiction and Fantasy regional convention for all places west of the Mississippi) will be held in Portland, Oregon this year. Almost my home town. at the Lloyd Center Doubletree Inn. The theme this year is Bridging Science and Imagination. Fitting since Portland is often referred to as Bridgetown–we have oodles of them.

Westercon is also combining forces with GearCon, the local Steampunk convention. And Oh do I have Steampunk! I’ve edited 6 anthologies and have a new book coming out under the pen name Julia Verne St. John. I should have advance copies available. And chapbooks of a brand new short story¬†Pirate Tea.¬†

Look for me at the con, I have paneling and autographs and a reading.
