I would like to apologize to attendees of New York Comic Con.
It’s a great show, but I turned down an offer to go six months ago because I knew my schedule could not handle it.
The schedule came out this week, and I am on it:
CSC: In Search For Humanity Through Utopian and Dystopian Narratives
What does it mean to be human in this age? Chong Kim (Soul Survivors, Inc.), Calvin Williams and Amy Adams (co-moderators), along with Stephen Duncombe (New York University), Brian Wood (DMZ) and Colleen Doran (A Distant Soil) explore the ways in which speculative fiction’s transformative social conditions illustrate the way we understand our own human identity.

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this has caused. I make a sincere effort to meet my convention obligations, but I never had any plans to attend this convention.
I remain behind schedule on my current assignment and must meet my obligations to my clients. I took a risk going to Washington to discuss the new IP law bill. I must limit my activities to my work and creator rights activism.
I will not be able to attend any conventions for the forseeable future, but I truly appreciate all my readers. You can reach me right here if you have any questions or comments.
…and a ride on the super-secret underground Senate choo-choo.
It was totally E ticket.
OK, it was all actually very productive, and I will try to find time to blog it, but I am just swamped, folks. No editor appreciates IP activism half as much as they appreciate a finished assignment.
