Book Fiend Reader Fest on September 25

September 18, 2021

I’ll be doing a live book event this coming weekend in Manchester, CT! It is (at least for now) the only in-person event on my schedule for 2021 other than Worldcon.

As part of the Book Fiend Readers Fest, I will participate on the following programming items:

Time, Space, and Alternate Universes panel – 1:10pm

Reading – 1:50

Attendees will get to hear an excerpt from a brand-new Conradverse story; a world premiere!

The rest of the day I will share a table with Esther Friesner in the dealers room. Please feel free to stop by for free signatures, free candy, and free advice (that last one worth almost as much as you will have paid for it!) We will also both have books for sale, and maybe a gently-used kidney. But probably just books.

Traitor for a Living: The Craft of Literary Translation

January 31, 2021

Last year I was the translator guest of honor at the Flights of Foundry virtual convention, and I delivered this thirty-minute talk on the subject. I’ve given versions of this talk in the past, at the Philadelphia Science Fiction Society and elsewhere, but now it’s available online for anyone who might be interested in such. (It’s completely unedited/unebridged, so pardon the virtual dust.)
