As most of you already know, my wife Kate has been extremely ill and spent almost the whole month of July in the hospital. She is back home now, but requires a lot of care. Her sister Sue has very generously offered to come down from Seattle to take care of her while I’m at the Worldcon, but her vacation time is finite and she can’t manage the previous weekend as well. Therefore, with extremely great regret, I find that I must cancel my SF in SF and Writers with Drinks readings.
To say that I am profoundly disappointed at this turn of events is an understatement, especially given the relatively short notice I can give. I’d like to publicly thank the organizers of both events for making the space for me in their schedules, and I’m very sorry to let them — and my friends in San Francisco — down. I hope to be able to reschedule both events for some time in the future.
