So, tonight's the big night, right before Diversicon kicks off. It's been nearly a year in coming, but I'm looking forward to seeing it all come together. Everyone's been working very hard, juggling between convention planning, putting out the latest issue of Tales of the Unanticipated, and somehow fitting in those 9 to 5 jobs too!
While I'm not sure what great stuff Kelly will be reading tonight, this evening I'll be sharing the following poems in the spirit of Diveriscon 14 "No Boundaries":
- 'What Kills A Man'
- 'Whorl'(from Hyphen Magazine. The first public reading!)
- 'Hey, Einstein' (from Defenestration)
- 'Warhammer' (from Paj Ntaub Voice)
- 'The End of Me'
- 'Homonculus' (from Tales of the Unanticipated)
- 'The Ghost Nang Nak'
- 'Songkran Niyomsane's Forensic Museum'
- and 'Destroy All Monsters' (from G-Fan #75!)
Andrea Hairston is also flying in this afternoon and may be coming in, so that's exciting. She'll be reading and participating in a number of panels while promoting her first novel Mindscape by Aqueduct Press, a press committed to feminist science fiction. Welcome to MN, Andrea, and all of our other out-of-town guests!
As a reminder: DreamHaven Books is at 912 W Lake Street, Minneapolis MN 55408. Right across from Phoenix Games and near the Bryant-Lake Bowl. We're going to get started at 6:30 PM.
Special thanks to SASE:The Write Place, DreamHaven Books, SF Minnesota, Diversicon and the scores of other great volunteers, friends and family who are making this all possible! :)
