Did I miss a meeting on Saturday? Because I'm sitting here thinking "wait a minute, when was the last meeting?" and trying to do the math and...yeah.
If I missed it, my sincerest apologies, I'm an idiot. If I didn't...um...just ignore this post.
The LiveJournal that updates about speculative fiction markets is, well, specficmarkets
I don't know if I posted this earlier or not but the following is a link for an open anthology. According to the website they haven't been getting enough (good) submissions. Take a look, you've got two months!http://www.darkcloudpress.com/TSN_antho.htm
The conference I'm probably going to (I'm making up my mind in the next couple of weeks) is CanWrite
. The Friday is what interests me, but there is a bit of spec fic stuff on the Saturday, too.
Anyway, let me know if any of you decide to go!
I'm going on a bit of a non-fiction kick, and I'm looking for suggestions. I'd particularly like to read accounts of different cultures and societies, anthropological or historical, anything that gives a vivid picture of life in another time and/or place. Non-fiction tends to be a bit hard for me, so the more lively and engaging the narrative, the better.
I've updated the backgrounder to the world that most of my stories are set in. It's now on-line at http://www.third-bit.com/~gvwilson/cherne.html
(complete with a rather crude little map). I am offering chocolate to anyone who spots inconsistencies, and for good questions. Do you want to know more about Cherne's geography? About what people eat? About the legend of the Clumsy Duck? Etc.
shows how much fiction I've written, month by month, since the fall of 1997. There are far too many gaps... and you'll notice a complete absence of gold stars (which I hope to use one day to mark sales).

I have put together a 4600 word description of Cherne, the world in which most of my stories are set. It's on-line at http://www.third-bit.com/~gvwilson/cherne.txt
. Comments, questions, and criticisms would be very welcome.
Thanks, and Happy Canada Day,
