When Words Collide, Calgary’s annual conference for writers, started up last night. Like last year, the weekend event is sold out. If you haven’t bought a pass, or want to think about attending next year, check them out. Best of luck to Axel Howerton, who put out last year’s Tall Tales of the Weird West and is sitting on a panel or two.
Also, I’d like to congratulate another one of my Tall Tales mates, Rick Overwater, on his new short story, “The Dim Beneath The Lights”, being included in the new Enigma Front: Burnt sci-fi anthology. Rick and the crew will be reading from the collection on Saturday, August 13, at the Delta South Calgary Hotel (also where When Words Collide is happening).
I had a chance to read Rick’s story earlier in the year and fans of our weird westerns won’t be disappointed!
