Wake and Analog ... getting closer

I received today the page proofs for the first of the four serialization installments of my next novel Wake, which will appear in Analog, starting with the November 2008 issue (which will be out in September). Yay!

I wrote an article today for my alumni magazine, on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Ryerson's founding -- looking ahead at what the next sixty years might hold. (I graduated from Ryerson in 1982 with a Bachelor of Applied Arts degree in Radio and Television Arts; fantasy author Tanya Huff and I were in the same class.)

And I worked on a keynote I'm giving day after tomorrow in Huntsville (Ontario cottage country) for the MEARIE Group, Canada's only insurance provider dedicated to the energy industry.

Meanwhile, I got invited to the Frye Festival today, a literary festival in Moncton, New Brunswick, in honour of the great Canadian English professor Northrop Frye; I was delighted to say yes.

Once I finish giving that talk on Wednesday morning, I have nothing at all on my schedule -- not even a lunch date -- for the next three weeks. All of that time will be heads-down working on Watch the second book in my WWW trilogy.
