Vancouver was great

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

The event at White Dwarf was packed, and I believe they sold out of Wake hardcovers. And, amazingly, some old friends from public school back in Toronto showed up. Cool! Bonnie Jean Mah and her infant son Jason were my escorts in Vancouver, and we were joined for dinner beforehand by Rhea Rose (Bonnie was […]

Xanadu Las Vegas is rockin’

Sunday, April 19th, 2009

Xanadu Las Vegas, the convention I’m Author Guest of Honor at right now, has been great fun so far. Today I gave a talk on writing, attended talks by Chase Masterson (above) and Lawrence Montaigne (below, with me and Carolyn), watched Chase’s excellent new movie Yesterday was a Lie, and had a wonderful three-hour Chinese […]

An important update on the Robert J. Sawyer event for Wake at the Waterloo Entertainment Centre in Waterloo, Ontario, on Thursday, May 21, at 7:30.

SLACking off near San Francisco

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

I took a little time for sight-seeing in San Francisco, accompanied by my dear friend Kaye Mason, Ph.D., who works at EA. We had private behind-the-scenes tours at the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s Museum of Vision, the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, and the Googleplex — I love my job! I’ve now arrived in Las Vegas […]

Borderlands signing rocked

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

My event at Borderlands Books went fabulously: big crowd, lots of books sold, and lots of fun. A special treat was that my cousin Eric Peterson came to the event. Before my reading, I met a fellow named Sean, who seemed intrigued by my books. He bought a mass-market paperback of Calculating God — used! […]
