The lobster and the canary apologize to all patient readers for the long hiatus; we were taking a rest during August, but are back now.
We are excited about the Toronto SpecFic Colloquium on October 15th (full disclosure: we are one of the guest speakers there). A newcomer to the scene-- this being its second year--the Toronto SpecFic Colloquium is set to become a "must attend" on the circuit, a great companion piece to gatherings in the Northeast/Middle Atlantic such as Readercon, Arisia, and Capclave.
As their website notes:
"The Toronto SpecFic Colloquium is a one-day event featuring a series of lectures, readings and discussions from major authors and industry professionals."
This year's keynoter is Mike Carey, the graphic novelist, whose talk is entitled "Speak of the Dazzling Wings": Myth, Language, and Modern Fantasy.
We'll be writing more about the Colloquium over the next few weeks. In the meantime, learn more by clicking here.
Better yet, why not come to Toronto and attend in person?
