A preview of Bubonicon 50 and a visit from a local author.
Albuquerque Science Fiction Society August Programming:
It’s a 2-in-1 Month! (Possibly 3-in-1…) Time for the Bubonicon 50 preview of the schedule and the t-shirts (with art from Eric Velhagen). It’s also possible a Vote on the 2019 Con Chair(s) will be needed – If so, current club voting rules will apply. Plus A Visit from an ABQ Author! The preview of Bubonicon 50 won’t take up our whole club time, so local author Lauren C. Teffeau (who has written short stories, and contributed to The Change: Tales of Downfall and Rebirth) will tell us about her debut novel, Implanted – a cyberpunk thriller.
Implanted is described as such: “When college student Emery Driscoll is blackmailed into being a courier for a clandestine organisation, she’s cut off from the neural implant community which binds the domed city of New Worth together. Her new masters exploit her rare condition which allows her to carry encoded data in her blood, and train her to transport secrets throughout the troubled city. New Worth is on the brink of Emergence – freedom from the dome – but not everyone wants to leave. Then a data drop goes bad, and Emery is caught between factions: those who want her blood, and those who just want her dead.”
Enter Through the Northside Door (back of church). St. Andrew is locking up the courtyard at 5:00 pm, so park around back! No outside food is allowed at St. Andrew. Please be discreet with any candy. Water/soda bottles and lidded beverage cups are permitted.
DOORS OPEN AT 7:15 PM. Please do not arrive before this time. We have to set up the room ourselves, and straighten/clean-up around 10:00 pm. We meet in the ACTIVITY ROOM (west end of building, enter through north doors).
St. Andrew Presbyterian Church on Ponderosa is near Erna Ferguson Library on San Mateo. Ponderosa is the northern border of Montgomery Park, and intersects with both San Mateo and San Pedro. The street is north of Comanche and south of Montgomery.
