Reading, Writing, and Dial-Up

It’s 10PM on Sunday night, I’m flying up to Oregon tomorrow morning to visit friends and family and to do a couple of signings in Beaverton and Salem, and I suddenly realized my mother has dial-up Internet access. While I’m sure I can find a wireless Intenet cafe somewhere in Salem, I’m trying to get an entry posted before I have to travel back to a time when 56 kilobits per second was considered cutting edge technology.

Saturday night, I had the pleasure of sharing the SFinSF event here in San Francisco with Jeff VanderMeer. The event consisted of a reading from each of us, followed by a discussion and Q&A moderated by Terry Bisson. The series is held monthly, so if you’re in San Francisco or the Bay Area and you enjoy good author events, swing by and give it a taste. Proceeds for the events go to the Variety Children’s Charity.

One of the audience members came up to me afterward and asked where he could find some of the short stories I’ve had published. I haven’t written much short fiction lately and until recently hadn’t had anything published since 2005. To be honest, I don’t know if I want some of them to be found, but I thought I’d share them here, in case anyone else was curious. The only one I know that can definitely be found is the last one, “A Zombie’s Lament,” upon which Breathers was based.

“Wish You Were Here”

So there you go. Happy hunting. Let me know if you find any of them. And now I’m going to finish packing and get ready for my journey back to the 20th century.
