Well, David and I survived our black belt test this past weekend; now we just have to wait for the results, which should arrive at the end of the month. The test was long (almost seven hours, from start to finish), but we were prepared for it, so I’m feeling reasonably optimistic.
In the meantime, here are a few events I’ll be part of during the next month or so.
October 16, 5-7pm
Children of Lovecraft reading:
50 Avenue B, New York, New York 10009
This celebration of Ellen Datlow’s latest anthology will feature readings by several of its contributors, including Livia Llewellyn, Laird Barron, Siobhan Carroll, Maria Dahvana Headley, Richard Kadrey, John Langan, David Nickle, and A.C. Wise.
October 22, 10am-4pm
