Shaenon: If you’re anywhere near the Bay Area on August 25, do not miss the release party for Skin Horse Volume 3 at Borderlands Books in San Francisco.  We will have live dramatizations, cupcakes, and wine, and my mom will be there!  Details here.

Channing:  There are admittedly many reasons to not want to live in California.  This is not one of them.  I’d ask you to eat a cupcake for me, but since this is a generally-directed post, everyone in attendance will be eating cupcakes for me, and that’s too many cupcakes.  I must watch my figure, after all.
