Allow me to wish all you dads out there a Happy Father’s Day. And — what’s that? You wish to offer reciprocal celebratory felicitations for my having fulfilled my biological function? Well, thank you kindly. From MBW and the HA I received a card and charmingly framed photos of me with the HA. Both ladies are feeling a bit under the weather, but despite that temporary deficiency, I consider them peerless.
So, now that that’s dispensed with: News. Read on at your peril.
I will be attending Westercon 71 in a few weeks. This year Denver hosts Westercon. I’m looking forward to the convention. I’m also hoping to get a chance to see some of the city, but I imagine I’ll spend the bulk of my time at the con. If I’m not on a panel or meeting-and-greeting I’ll probably be locked away somewhere writing. If you will be in town, here is my convention schedule. MBW and the HA will be out touring Denver. I’ll be lonely. Come say hello.

In other news, a story of mine placed as runner up in Liberty Island’s Fantastic Fathers & Magical Mothers Spring Writing Contest. The story should appear in a few days on the site. I’ll post a link on Twitter and Facebook.
Runner up! That’s right: as you’ve all long suspected, I’m number two.
