New interview with Adventures in Sci-Fi Publishing, and my WorldCon schedule

Just a couple of weeks until Seven Wonders hits the shelves in the US (UK readers have to wait another week), but in the meantime over at Adventures in Sci-Fi Publishing I talk to Shaun Farrell about the book, superheroes, and writing in general. I’ve got a couple more podcasts coming up too, as well as the one over at Functional Nerds which I mentioned yesterday.

WorldCon is now exactly two weeks away, and the draft programme is now online. It’s a real monster (I’m almost expecting there to be an opening panel on the Thursday morning called “Reading the Chicon Program Grid”) with a whole tonne of stuff that looks excellent.

My own schedule is as follows:

Thursday Aug 30 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Researching history that never happened
Room: San Francisco
With Kenneth Hite, Martin Berman-Gorvine, Mary Robinette Kowal and Nick DiChario

Thursday Aug 30 4:30 pm – 5:00 pm
Reading (a little Seven Wonders, and maybe a sneak peak at The Age Atomic, the sequel to Empire State due out in May 2013)
Room: Dusable

Friday Aug 31 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
The new pulp fiction
Room: McCormick
With Chuck Wendig and Stephen Blackmoore

Saturday Sep 1 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
Social media for writers
Room: Gold Coast

Autograph session 18
Room: Autograph tables

Also on the Friday is the Angry Robot Author Showcase, being held at The Book Cellar, 4736-38 North Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, IL 60625 – full details here. Come and join myself, Chuck Wendig, Kim Curran and Gwenda Bond as we launch our new novels!

There will be other stuff going on as well – there’s the famous Tor party, which I get to go to as a Tor author (OMG!!), and of course the Hugo Awards on the Sunday night, and the associated pre-parties and after-parties.

It should be an absolute blast – if you’re going, come and say hello!
