 I missed that this group even existed until it showed up in my Connie Willis Google Alert with the recent activity.

At a recent appearance at BaltiCon over Memorial Day, Connie indicated that her new novel, All Clear, is finally finished and just needs some tweaking before being sent off to the publishers.  I hope to find out more details on how and when it will be published.  It has taken about six years to write and may be published in multiple volumes.

Connie will be making several appearances this summer, at the Locus Awards this coming weekend in Seattle, at Comic Con International in San Diego, WorldCon in Denver, and a separate signing in Seattle when she is there teaching for the Clarion workshop.  Full details on the appearances and other news (including her latest Hugo Award nomination for "All Seated on the Ground" can be found on conniewillis.net .

Thank goodness she's coming to WorldCon! They were seriously thinking of NOT having her and that's just crazy. That's where the hugo is usually awarded.

Denver WorldCon

I'm not sure where you heard they weren't considering on having Connie. She's had a membership all along. They only recently added her to the progam participants, but I don't think they intended to not let her participate. The WorldCon is always where the Hugo Awards are handed out and there's a good chance Connie may pick up her tenth one this year.

Please keep us posted if you find out more about All Clear!

I took To Say Nothing of the Dog with me to the hospital when I had my first child. I took Passage with me when I had my second. And after a while I started to worry that I would have to have another baby to get a new Connie Willis novel... ;)
