Photo of the Day that was Actually Taken Tuesday: Me in Rouleau

I had a school reading in Rouleau (Corner Gas-watching readers may know it better as Dog River) on Tuesday. Here I am in “action” (I use the term loosely) reading a few pages from my new YA SF proposal. I also read from Jimi Hendrix: Kiss the Sky, talked about myself (I’m very good at …

I make the news in Meadow Lake!

The Meadow Lake Progress has posted an article about my visit to that community the weekend before last for a library reading. It’s a good article, although I wouldn’t take the quotation marks around what I supposedly said very literally… You can read the whole thing here, but here’s how it starts: Regina-based science fiction …

Live from Meadow Lake!

I know intellectually Saskatchewan is a big province (it’s only slightly smaller than Texas, and you know the old rhyme about that: “The sun done riz, the sun done set, and we ain’t outta Texas yet!”) (OK, maybe you didn’t know that old rhyme, but now you do.) Still, you get a really good feel …

Where I’ll be next weekend

I’ve got so much to get done this week that it’s hard to look ahead to next weekend, but I thought I should mention that next Saturday I’ll be reading at the Meadow Lake Public Library at 7 p.m. Oh, look, here’s a link! (The photo is the one they’re using to promote the reading; …

Yes, I’m still alive…

…I just haven’t been blogging. Busy, busy busy busy, is why. And what have I primarily been busy with? Well, I’m currently the writer-in-residence at Michael A. Riffel High School here in Regina. This is a program sponsored by the Saskatchewan Writers Guild, and it’s been an interesting experience. I’ve primarily been doing classroom presentations–more …

Toronto Reading: Centennial

Last night’s reading at the Centennial branch of the Toronto Public Library was certainly very different from the one the night before. We had a small (but high-quality!) crowd at the Beaches, Candas and I, in a quiet, intimate setting. At the Centennial branch, Alison Baird (that’s her reading in the picture at right) and …

Toronto Reading: The Beaches

I know, I know, I’ve hardly been blogging at all for the last little while, except for posting my science columns. I went to Winnipeg for KeyCon and didn’t say a word about it. I’ve seen all kinds of interesting science articles and haven’t commented or linked. I’ve been a bad, bad blogger. But I’ll …

We came, we saw, we chapbooked

Today was the final day of the 2008 Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild‘s Online Youth Mentorship Program, and a fine day it was. The twelve teens who have been taking part in the program and the four mentors (of whom I was one) met this morning at St. James’s Anglican Church in Saskatoon and, with the guidance …

That’s the name of a Canada Council-funded reading and discussion series starting up soon at the Toronto Public Library–and I’ll be one of the 26 featured authors. Here’s how my two events are described: Candas Jane Dorsey and Edward Willett Two of Canadian SF’s most fearless explorers of big ideas, Candas Jane Dorsey (A Paradigm …

Photo of the (Yester)day: Me reading in Saskatoon

I made the trek up to Saskatoon yesterday, killing two birds with one stone: I met with two of the girls I’m mentoring through the Saskatchewan Writers Guild’s Youth Mentorship Program, and then read from Marseguro at McNally Robinson bookstore. Both events were successful, although you have to wonder if it’s worth it when you’re …
