Off to Montreal for Worldcon

Today, my friend Charlotte and I are flying to Montreal for several days of sightseeing before we attend Worldcon.

It’s a first trip to the city for both of us, and there are quite a few things we hope to see, not to mention visiting a whole list of great restaurants.

The Biodome sounds marvelous, and I am dying to see the ring-tailed lemurs that are there temporarily. They also have penguins!

We will probably spend a lot of time in the old city historic district, as well.

Finally, I don’t think we can miss the Museum of Fine Arts. I’m especially looking forward to seeing exhibits of African art and glass sculptures. There is also exhibition space devoted to Napoleon, of consuming interest to me as a fan of romances set during the Napoleonic Wars.

The novella series A Place of Refuge begins with Finding Refuge: Telepathic warrior Talia Avi, genius engineer Miki Boudreaux, and augmented soldier Faigin Balfour fought the fascist Federated Colonies for ten years, following the charismatic dissenter Jon Churchill. Then Jon disappeared, Talia was thought dead, and Miki and Faigin struggled to take Jon’s place and stay alive. When the FC is unexpectedly upended, Talia is reunited with her friends and they are given sanctuary on the enigmatic planet Refuge. The trio of former guerillas strive to recover from lifetimes of trauma, build new lives on a planet with endless horizons, and forge tender new connections with each other.

    Nice! I envy your jetsetting itinerary. I know it's probably exhausting and a lot of hard work, but I'm just going to fantasize.

    Biodome is very much worth going to see. My girlfriend and I went last year and had an amazing time.
