tweets from 1989

There's been a meme going around Twitter called Tweets from 1989. If you go to Twitter.com and search for posts with the hashtag #tweetsfrom1989 you'll find a bunch of hilarious 140-character comments people might have made 21 years ago. These will be mixed in with the Twitter dump that shows up on the blog every day, but I thought I'd post them separately for entertainment value.

the legendary triple launch at Balticon

If you're going to be at Balticon over Memorial Day weekend, then you need to come to:

THE LEGENDARY TRIPLE LAUNCH





The anthology Dragon's Lure from Dark Quest Books (which has my Dragon Precinct story "Fire in the Hole") will be launching at a special three-book launch party on Sunday 30 May from 7-9pm in the Garden Room at the Marriott Hunt Valley (where the convention's being held).

The other two anthologies kicking off at the party are New Blood from Padwolf Publishing and Bad-Ass Faeries 3: In All Their Glory from Mundania Press.

There will be raffles and prizes and readings and food and drink and all kindsa cool stuff. More details here....

Hope to see many of you there!

Farscape: Scorpius #1 on sale Wednesday

Farscape: Scorpius #1 hits stands on Wednesday the 12th of May. Written by Farscape creator Rockne S. O'Bannon and David Alan Mack (infinitydog) with art by Mike Ruiz, the issue continues Scorpius's encounter with the mysterious Grennij.

Comics Continuum has a six-page preview. It's pretty awesome.

Also: the 12th is Dave's 41st birthday. So do him a solid, and buy his comic book. It'll be a dandy present for him....

quote of the evening

At dinner tonight:

"He needs to eat more fiber. See, his regular doctor, as well as his gastroenterologist said--"

"So his regular doctor and his irregular doctor?"
