I’m in Calgary, Alberta, for a couple of days, for the Fall 2006 Write-Off retreat organized by Imaginative Fiction Writers Association. It goes through Sunday evening, but I have to leave Sunday morning, ’cause I’m off to Regina, Saskatchewan, where I’m giving a keynote at a conference on nursing in 2020, sponsored by the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses Association.

Then Monday morning, I spend the whole damn day flying to get to Montreal — I’d have thought there’d be direct flights between Regina and Montreal, but there aren’t. Monday and Tuesday, I’m doing free public readings at libraries in Montreal; details are here.

Here in Calgary, I’ve seen the December Asimov’s on sale, which has another poem, “Copyright Notice,” by my brother-in-law David Livingstone Clink (look for it on page 5 — it’s easy to miss, ’cause it looks like a real copyright notice). And I’m tickled pink that Susan Forest, my friend and one of my writing students, has her first Asimov’s story in this issue as well (page 50).

Also now on sale is the December 2006 Analog, with the third of four parts of the serialization of my next novel, Rollback.
