Those of you who come to Dragon*con or many of the other conventions I’ve attended, will have had a chance to play Are You A Werewolf? with me. If you haven’t, you should know that it’s a fun game “of mob rule and paranoia” for 7-15 people which lasts anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour.

The version I play comes from Looney Labs and they’ve set up a Kickstarter project to raise enough money to fund a Deluxe version of the game.

In their first day, they’ve raised over a quarter of their goal.

Check it out here and see if you want to contribute — depending upon your contribution level you can get anything from a FLUXX PROMO CARD through to having the game’s inventor fly out and host a games party with you and your friends.

I went for the Convention special which is 3 copies of the Deluxe game.

Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta gave a great talk on writing at The Writers of the Future workshop in which they tossed out jokingly how they could never get stories for their Purple Unicorn anthology (which, of course, doesn't exist).

Challenge accepted.

The next day I emailed Kevin a copy of Rhubarb and Beets, a short story I'd written in those 24 hours dealing with — you guessed it — purple unicorns.

Real joy came when I realized that the story might possibly be a fit for an anthology I'd been asked to write for. Lo and behold, it was accepted. More details to come.

Hi all,

I just wanted to let you know that I had a great interview today with Kim Alexander which will be available on Channel 104 on Sirius Xm satellite radio as part of the WonderCon radio feed.

You can also hear interviews with Naomi Novik, Bob Reid, and a host of others. The broadcast loops so you may have to wait a while to hear me!

Wow, well I never thought it would happen!

Apparently Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum novel, One for the Money is actually being made into a film.

I’m curious to see how they handled it.
