Getting ready to go to France, Italy, and Greece, for activities related to MaddAddam; then to London and the UK for Stone Mattress.
While in England, I will also help with fundraising for BirdLife International and its upcoming Vultures initiative – to save the very endangered European and Asian vulture species.
Working like mad to get several projects done before leaving, among them a piece on Canada’s need for a Cord Blood Bank,and a piece on travelling in the Arctic. Nothing brings home the effects of climate change like that: you can see them unfolding!
About to have another meeting with Darren Aronofsky and his Protozoa group re: their HBO series of the MaddAddam Trilogy! Will we resolve the questions surrounding, um, the blue penises? You can read all about it at Vulture.com.
More on the series is available at:

There’s a big new literary fair/festival in Toronto called Inspire! You can read all about it at: Toronto International Book Fair.
I’ll be there! But can I dress up as someone in Alphinland? (See Stone Mattress.)
Just wondering if I have to get a push-up bra and some spangles.
Lots coming up this fall… we’re posting it all on the Events page as the urls and specific venues come in.
I read the schedule and immediately went out for some vitamin pills and Instant C drinks. I think I should get a cane.
