HELLHOLE AWAKENING—Seattle, Norwescon, and Atlanta

Normally, I wouldn’t consider working the weekend as a guest speaker and panelist at a major science fiction convention to be the RELAXING part of the tour, but it was great just to stay in one place for a couple of days, unpack my suitcase, sleep in the same bed. On Saturday I had a worldbuilding panel with Ken Scholes, Brenda Carr, and Stephen Gillette, an autographing, a panel on Sail to Success, Superstars, and other high-end writers workshops with Arc Manor publisher Shahid Mahmud, Nancy Kress, and Jack Skellingstad, a panel on marketing for people who don’t like marketing.

A Dark Week for Horror…

Three blows, each one harder than the last.

Wednesday I learned that prolific and popular horror writer James Herbert died. He had a great influence on the genre, with his huge mass-market hits The Rats, Fluke, The Fog, Lair. Critics might have thought he wrote garish horror; he had the last laugh when he received the Order of the British Empire as well as the Grand Master Award at the World Horror Convention.  Alas, I never met him.

Then on Friday, within an hour, I learned of the loss of two more, much closer friends.
