Southern California here I come…

Lorrie already posted most of this information on her blog, so if you’ve seen this, apologies, but the two populations don’t entirely overlap, so here’s my schedule in L.A. for any of you who might be able to drop in on an event and say hello, or have friends who might be interested.

Thursday 15 October, 8:00-10:00 PM – LASFS @ Clubhouse

I’ve been hearing about the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society for years, but have never actually been there. They want me to say something intelligent. How bright I will be after driving down from Berkeley I don’t know, but years of doing SF cons has left me able to think on my feet. Come and ask questions…. Address: 11513 Burbank Blvd, North Hollywood, CA 91601-2309. Doors open around 7:30, meeting starts between 8:15 and 8:30. There is no cover charge to attend this event. For more information, see the LASFS website,

Friday 16 October, 4:00-5:00 PM – Book signing @ Cauldron Kitty

This is a lovely little shop in the Silver Lake area of LA where my mother once lived, much more serious than the name would imply. 2818 #1 Rowena Ave in Silverlake, between Hollywood and Downtown.
Bring books and I’ll sign them. They’ll also have them for sale.

If you’re interested in the Oracular Seidh workshop (see below) you can sign up there, though they’d rather you got in touch with them now.

Friday 16 October, 7:00-10:00 PM – Oracular Seidh – $5

We will be performing oracular seidh to kick off the workshop weekend. I’m not sure when doors open, but they will close, promptly, at 7:30 PM . This is open to anyone with questions, even if you are not doing the workshop.

Seidh will be held near the USC campus, at a private home, so you’ll have to call the bookstore for the exact address: (323) 644-0268. We’ll debrief afterward over food.

Saturday 17 October, 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM
Sunday 18 October, 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM: Trance Workshop!

I believe there is still room in the workshop. Participants are expected to have purchased, and read, /Trance-Portation/ before attending the workshop, and are strongly encouraged to have attended the oracular seidh the night before. There will be meal breaks, but food is not included in your registration.

For more information, including whether there are any spaces left, call Cauldron Kitty at (323) 644-0268. The workshop will be held at a location rather near the USC campus; call the bookstore for more details.

Sunday 18 October, 5:00-7:00 PM, Book Signing @ Alexandria II, Pasadena

The signing is at the Alexandria II Metaphysical Bookstore, 170 S Lake Ave in Pasadena. For more information, see the bookstore’s website,

Monday 19 October, 7:00-9:00 PM, Lecture and Signing @ Borders, Brea

Another chance to buy books or get old ones signed, at Borders Books, 429 S Associated Rd in Brea. Their phone number is (714) 672-0120.

Tuesday 20 October, ???, Book Signing in San Diego

There’s a possibility I’ll be at the Borders in San Diego that evening. If it pans out I’ll post the info here.

Hope to see some of my SoCal friends soon….
