Over the last few months Zach Jernigan has been conducting a long-distance interview on the subject of race in fantasy writing. His interviewees are David Anthony Durham, Aliette de Bodard, Ken Liu and myself, and it's been a privilege to be amongst that company and get to talk around that subject. Zach put a huge amount of work into getting this off the ground, and the results are now up at SF Signal here. I seriously encourage you to take a look. I can't vouch for my own contributions but overall it's thought-provoking stuff.
On a more generally organisational note, as well as Nerd East (9th June, Durham Uni Student's Union) and Edge Lit (1) (14th July, Derby Quad) there is a real chance of my ending up in London's Forbidden Planet on June 21st for the launch party of Newcon Press's Hauntings anthology, so if you're a Londoner with some Shadows of the Apt books unsigned, that would be a good time to remedy that (2). This isn't a definite yet — I will update the post when I know for sure.
(1) I am minded to suggest a new name. If you google "edge lit" it directs you to a surprising number of sites about things that are lit around their edges.
(2) The signing thing. I'm not suggesting you move out of London just because I'm going to be there. You have the Olympics for that.
