Just a note to celebrate the fact that I survived five consecutive weeks of conventions and am now back at work on Kaspar’s Box. The hardcover of Melchior’s Fire is now here, so look for it any time now in stores even though it’s officially a June title. They haven’t told me yet when Balshazzar’s Serpent will be out in mass market pb, but it should be in the next couple of months tops. Also a short notice heads up for folks in the D.C. area on Sunday, April 29: I’ll be one of several SF authors doing a 2 PM signing at the Barnes and Noble store, 3651 Jefferson Davis Highway, Alexandria, Virginia. Brenda Clough, Charles Sheffield, and many others will also be signing. Now back to work. Sigh….

The best thing I can report is that halfway through my marathon of convention appearances I’m still going and about to head for the next gig in beautiful New Jersey. Sometimes in between all this I hope to get enough time to finish KASPAR’S BOX, which I’d like to have in by the end of May 1 but probably won’t. I’m carrying a Handspring Visor with one of the folding full size keyboards with me to the cons, but there’s only so much I can do. Best is here in the office with my custom keyboard, big display, and sound insulation.

      Lots of folks appear to be reaching the sign-on home page and then clicking email or news without ever discovering the wealth of other stuff on the web site. If you’re one of those, the next time you go to www.jackchalker.com, click on the big Well World and see what you’ve been missing. On the real home page that shows up, click on anything of interest to go there.

      Not much more to report right now. I hope to continue to see many of you at the cons to come; please make one if you can. Details on all those conventions and appearances can also be reached off the home page. And, no, JerseyDevilCon is not named for a hockey team; it and the team are named for the legendary monster of the Pine Barrens. –jlc
