Currently I'm in London, where I've just been meeting with my new editor at Orbit. More on this soon, and I hope to be able to announce the UK publication schedule for my next three novels (after "Rule 34") before long.
However, medical issues affecting a close family member are going to affect my public appearances over the next few months.
Unfortunately, due to the vagaries of hospital timetables, I won't be able to travel in order to be guest of honour at DORT.con (Dortmund, April 9/10th) or Minicon (Minneapolis, April 24-26th). John Scalzi has kindly agreed to take my place at Minicon; I hope to be able to announce my replacement at DORT.con shortly.
UPDATE: DORT.con are pleased to announce that their new guest of honour will be Robert Charles Wilson.
Hopefully things will be back to normal by June. In the meantime, I'm not accepting any new public speaking or travel invitations.
I'd like to offer my most sincere apologies to the convention committees concerned, and to any con-goers who may have been hoping to see me. Alas, bad shit sometimes happens, and my first responsibility is to my family.
NB: (a) I am not the person who's ill, and (b) I want you to respect their privacy by not discussing their illness here.
