Every year, generous volunteers host speculative fiction events—such as conventions, literary festivals and award ceremonies—all over the globe. Having been one of those volunteers from time to time, I can categorically state that it’s not a thankless task. Authors, in particular, really appreciate the opportunity to emerge from self-imposed isolation.

23-24 September:  Oz Comic Con 23 at the Sydney Showground. I’ll be at the IFWG Publishing table along with Richard Harland and J. S. Breukelaar, so come say “Hi!”
30 September to 2 October: Conflux 17 (Passages & Portals) in Canberra. I’ll be launching my new book, The Hidden Keystone, at this convention, so hope to see you there.
