I'm looking forward to two events to welcome our Interior Alaska (eventually) coming spring. On March first, for First Friday, I'll be signing books from 5 till 8 pm at Alaskana Raven Books & Things in the Co-op Plaza. Check it out if you haven't been there before; it's a treasure trove of all things Alaska and a great place to find that one special book you've been looking for.
Then, on Saturday, March 2, at 7:00 pm in the Bear Gallery at Pioneer Park, I'm honored to be reading along with David Marusek. I consider David the finest science fiction writer in the state, and we're lucky to have this opportunity to hear him read from the newly released second book in his series, Upon This Rock.Read More

Comedies and drama, documentaries and shorts-- hope you can catch a few, all at Alaska Coffee Roasters on Geist Road in Fairbanks.Read More
