Next weekend, October 4–6, will see Can-Con—Ottawa’s original speculative fiction convention—taking place at the Minto Suite Hotel in downtown Ottawa.
I’ll be attending, sitting on panels, doing a reading, going to parties and hopefully winning an Aurora Award! I’m looking forward to seeing too many people to list here and know the weekend will go to quickly.
If you’re looking for me, my schedule is below.
Otherwise, looking for me at the ChiZine Publications‘ dealer table, at the Royal Oak bar or whatever room parties are going on.
