I think I posted before, there's a science fiction discussion and book signing Sunday, August 24 at the Ann Arbor district library at 2 pm. Karl Schroeder was going to be on it but had to step off the panel due to health reasons. Paul Melko will be taking his place.
Paul Melko is a science fiction author who lives outside of columbus, OH. Paul's fiction has appeared in Asimov's Science Fiction, Realms of Fantasy, Spider Magazine, The Year's Best Science Fiction, and other magazines and anthologies. Singularity's Ring, his first novel, was released from Tor in February 2008 and a science fiction collection, Ten Sigmas and Other Unlikelihoods, was released from Fairwood Press in March 2008. His novella "The Walls of the Universe" was nominated for the Sturgeon, Nebula, and Hugo Awards in 2007.
