So I went to Portales and all I got was this lousy -
For context, click the image. Or here.
Wait! That’s not lousy at all! It’s entirely Awesome! It's a plaque for being Guest of Honor at the 2016 Jack Williamson Lectureship. And that’s a real Clovis Point!
Revision: I went to Portales and all I got was this most excellent award and a wonderful time!
A new antagonist appears!
Not sure what the gruff Anglo-looking dude part is meant to represent. Not me, for sure. I only wish I could grow a beard that swell.

If you’re antagonized by some dude talking at you about nerd stuff, that is. Or by, well, me.
Yes, that’s me. Okay, no, it’s not, it’s an intensely swell picture representing some aspects of my body of work. The important thing is what it’s advertising: an upcoming apparition of me, at the 2016 Jack Williamson Lectureship at Eastern New Mexico University, Portales NM, April 7-9th. Along with the inimitable Connie Willis and no doubt a host of other SF/F luminaries from New Mexico and its environs.
But wait – there’s more! I’ll also be appearing the Wednesday after, April 15th …
So a bunch has happened since last I checked in here. I will try to fill in some of the highlights right here over the next few days.
One of the biggest came – was it almost a month ago? – when for the first time I got to attend the Jack Williamson Lectureship at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales. It was swell.
Uncle Vic wants you!
…To come see him as Guest of Honor here next year!
This year’s guest of honor was Paolo Bacigalupi,
whom I met for the first time.
