A couple of days ago, someone asked me if I would be available this summer for speaking engagements, and the surprising answer is YES! Because of a lot of uncertainty about my schedule earlier this spring, I was forced to leave my summer without strong commitments. The upshot is that I am now free to speak to your library / reading club / civic organization / SCA chapter / science fiction and fantasy convention, etc.
As of the last three of four days, though, the summer has started to be scheduled. If you are interested in having me speak about medieval stuff, contact me soon.
