Attractions, Coming and Current
This week's Grand Rounds is up over at David Williams' Health Business Blog. Thanks for including me, David!
I'm going to be hosting Grand Rounds myself on August 28. I'm more than a little nervous about this (especially since that's the first week of school), but I'm excited, too, and grateful to Nick Genes for reminding me that I'd offered to host this summer. He'll be doing an interview with me for Medscape, and I'll let you know when that's posted.
Elliot has posted a very smart and satisfying review of The Fate of Mice. Thanks, Elliot!
Gary and I are gearing up for Mythcon. This morning I practiced the new piece I'll be reading there, which clocks in at just about forty minutes. Perfect! Unfortunately, my reading's opposite a panel that includes the guests of honor, Ellen Kushner and Delia Sherman, not to mention the illustrious Ellen Klages, so I hope someone will come hear me. I'd go to their panel myself, if I could! But Gary will be there, even if nobody else is. And the reading was rescheduled from nine in the morning to one in the afternoon, which is much easier on my brain.
The conference includes a concert by the Renaissance and early-music group Broceliande, who perform Tolkien's songs on their album The Starlit Jewel (currently unavailable, unfortunately). Gary and I are really looking forward to that. And the evening video showings include Hush, one of our favorite Buffy episodes. All in all, it should be a great weekend!
