Invite to Ad Astra

I just got the email invite to Ad Astra. This is where Julie Czerneda launched her Polaris: A Celebration of Polar Science anthology earlier this year. My story, Polar Shift, is the second story in that antho; I wrote it as Emily Mah. Her launch was the most successful one I've ever seen. We signed books for an hour and the con sold out of copies by the end of the weekend.

Me, I was still getting used to having booksellers ask me to write in their merchandise. I don't know that I'll ever get used to taking a pen to the half title page of a published book.

We probably won't be able to make it all the way back to Toronto next year. I'll think about it and count pennies. It's tempting.


  1. I think you should totally go especially since you were invited to go!

  2. Yeah, that's why I'm tempted. Toronto's a ways, though, and Trevor may be going to grad school in the UK next year, which will tap us out.

  3. Yeah, that's tough. Maybe your romance will make enough to let you go!

  4. It won't be out until after the con, and won't be making royalties for a while after that.
