In a couple of hours, Lisa Costello, [info]the_child, and I are off to the airport to fly to San Diego for Gaslight Gathering. Those fine folks have invited me to be their Guest of Honor. How could I say no?

This afternoon when we arrive, we'll be visiting Illumina, the company that performed the primary analysis for my Whole Genome Sequencing. There I will give my talk on cancer and genomics from the patient perspective. After that, we'll be the whole weekend at the convention.

The Gaslight Gathering folks have been incredibly kind and generous, offering me all sorts of support. I cannot thank them enough for the invitation, and very much look forward to spending the weekend with that crew. If you're in southern California, especially San Diego, drop in and see me.

Dropped a plug in for your books at Penguicon at the roundtable discussion "Is steampunk scifi?"

The IQ and genre knowledge deficits of several participants made it less than ideal. The guy who admitted he didn't read was especially endearing.

I saw them last year at World Steam Expo. They were a lot of fun.
