Friday Quick Updates: Ursula Vernon tonight! Then: ConTemporal at UNC-TV, Jeaniene Frost, and Richard Case

Before I get to the imminently forthcoming events, I have to take a quick moment to thank Jaym Gates again for putting the April 23 World Book Night / NC Speculative Fiction Night / Bull Spec Launch Party extravaganza together. It’s going to be a great lineup of game designers and writers, authors, translators, and a huge crew of Bull Spec #8 contributors, and I hope a whole lot of you (and your friends and random strangers!) help make it a great night. (And it will be good to see Jaym again after far too long as well!) OK, that’s done, so on to the upcoming events!
