For those of you who view clicking through picture galleries with the same horror our parents reserved for slide shows of Aunt Ermintrude's trip to the Catskills, today's post at Beyond the Veil is for you. I've cherry-picked some of my best photos of Dragon*Con 2011 and wrapped them in the lightest of all possible con reports. And there isn't a panel table anywhere in sight. Enjoy!

This one totally blew me away. Lord Bai’s Discovery” from the anthology Dragon’s Lure has made the short list for the Washington Science Fiction Association’s 2011 Small Press Award, along with stories by Sarah Monette, Carrie Vaughn, Jack McDevitt, Catherynne M. Valente and RJ Astruc. The awards will be presented at Capclave, October 14-16, in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
I’m still pinching myself–to think my story about a foodie dragon is being read in such company… I may need a glass of champagne just to calm down.
And to think the only news I thought I’d have today was the posting of Michael Swanwick’s Balticon interview. Which you should totally read. He’s one of the best raconteur’s ever. Then you can go back to watching me shriek and caper around the computer.

I’m not the only one who thinks the cover for Hellebore & Rue is simply gorgeous. The cover made it to the finals in the first round of Rainbow Awards judging. So did a cover by one of my favorite people: Anne Cain. Let the best cover win, even if I really, really hope it’s ours.

Cruxshadows violinist JoHanna Moresco demonstrates violin technique to a young friend before Monday morning's concert.
It’s been a challenging week here at Casa Ward/Uchrin. Days of rain succeeded in doing what earthquake and hurricane failed to do: postpone my work on my Dragon*Con photos and videos.
We’re still dealing with the aftermath of the flood, but the photos are sorted and posted at Flickr. I plan to post a Thursday Thirteen at Beyond the Veil in the near future, but Flickr’s the place if you want to see the complete set.
Meanwhile, Buzzy Multimedia has posted my interviews with authors Maria V. Snyder and Paolo Bacigalupi. We’re also tweaking my Tour of Tor. I’ll post the link soon.
Finally, I want to remind everybody that my story “Billy’s Monster” will be published in Hellfire Lounge II: Rat Pack Redux. The story leans more toward horror than my usual, but with a scheduled publication date of late September/early October, it’s certainly in keeping with the season.
