My Geek Moment

While hanging out in the hall at WFC, I bumped into Terry Bisson and excitedly introduced myself.  In a weird way, Terry is responsible for several writer-related things in my life.  In early 2003 I took his class at the New School on writing science fiction, fantasy and horror after deciding I wanted to devote more of my life to writing.  Terry had just taken a leave of absence and so the class was taught by editor Alice Turner.  Through Alice, I was hooked up with my current writers group, Altered Fluid, which formed after taking Terry’s class.  Alice and Terry were also the founders of the KGB Fantastic Fiction reading series, of which I am now the co-host with Ellen Datlow.  Plus I also happen to be a huge fan of Terry’s writing.  So it was really cool to run into him in the hallway.  Mercurio Rivera suggested we take a picture for posterity, so here it is:

Genreville

Rose Fox and Josh Jasper have been hard at work on their website known as Genreville.com, a site under the Publishers Weekly banner about all things spec fic, told from two of the most well-read people in the field.  They’ve also been hard at work interviewing the KGB guests and posting the videos online for all to see.  They’ve uploaded two months of KGB guest interviews so far, and last night’s, I’m told, will be up on Monday.  Do yourselves a favor and check out this really cool blog.
