I looked at some Carl Barks duck paintings before starting this.
Last Friday night was my first public reading and my first visit to a sci-fi convention. New, and yet so familiar.
Reading my own work was much easier than either playing with a band or doing standup, because I didn’t have to memorize anything. And the Lunacon experience was much like a folk music conference. A similar crowd but with cosplay replacing banjos.
We were an impressive group. Good stories read right. The plan is for the BSFW to do Lunacon every year, and I plan on taking part.
I’m reading my own work, along with my fellow BSFW authors, at Lunacon this year. Lunacon is the longest-running Science Fiction and Fantasy convention in the New York area, presented by the New York Science Fiction Society. April 7 – 9, 2017, at the Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown, NY.
The BSFW reading is Friday the 7th, from 7:30PM to 10:00PM. I’ll be on somewhere between 8 and 10.
Should be fun.
