Special Event ~ Steampunk Tea for the Locus Foundation at Borderlands

I hinted at this a little while ago, Gentle Reader, but I have added one final event for 2015 in San Francisco. You won’t see me again in public until I visit Orlando next March.

I’ll be attending this event in costume (either steampunk or full Victorian, I haven’t decided which) and I’ve donated a number of items from my collection to the goody bags. Finally, there is a good chance you will get to try my Mum’s famous scotch eggs.  Previously they honored the Soulless book launch party in 2009, but haven’t been seen in public since. Very coveted, Mum’s scotch eggs.

Here are the details:
