Sorry, I haven’t been blogging at all lately! I’ve been doing lots of other things–revisions on The Raven Tower and a short story for an anthology, and more stuff that’s not worth mentioning here.

But! Worldcon approaches! And I will indeed be in San Jose. You can see the whole schedule here (though I’d check it a few times between now and the convention, I gather it might well need some updating in the next few days, for various reasons, and I’d like to give a shoutout to Mary Robinette Kowal and her fabulous team).

Here’s my schedule as of today:

Friday August 17, 2018

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Pronouns Matter — Gender Courtesy for Fans

San Jose Convention Center , 210C

Spend an hour talking about pronoun and identity variations, and why they matter to our fellow fans. How do we ask about pronouns? What possible pronouns are there? How can we make our fannish spaces more inclusive when we write, name, and interact with other fans?

Moderator Ann Leckie | Roni Gosch | Angela Lujan | Ellen Kuehnle | Rivers Solomon

1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Kaffeeklatsch: Ann Leckie

San Jose Convention Center , 211B

3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Autographs

San Jose Convention Center , Autographing

Ann Leckie | Fonda Lee | Shelley Adina | Nick Kanas | Carrie Patel | Stanley Schmidt | Gail Carriger


Saturday August 18, 2018

1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Reading: Hugo Finalists – Best Novel

San Jose Convention Center , 211A

Listen to some of this year’s Hugo Novel finalists as they share their work.

Ann Leckie | John Scalzi | Mur Lafferty

So there it is, that’s where you can find me at Worldcon this year. And do please feel free to say hi if you see me around. I can’t promise I’ll have much time to stop and chat, if I’m on my way somewhere with a definite time attached (which can happen at a con), but I do want to see you! Also I plan to have badge ribbons for folks who are interested in that.

I’m looking forward to seeing you all!

    I recall when I attended a signing of yours in Birmingham and raised my hand to ask a question, the woman hosting the event called out “The person in the purple gloves.” and I wondered at the time if you’d asked them to avoid using gendered language. <3

      Oh, I remember that! šŸ˜€ And I didn’t ask for that, actually. Though I’ve been trying to avoid using gendered language that way myself.
