Arisia 2020 Schedule

This year I'll be co-hosting two Meetups at Arisia. Meetups are small, intimate gatherings where participants sit together around a table (usually) and chat rather than sit in formal rows in a meeting room. Meetups give convention attendees a chance to get to know each other and to talk about things that are too specific for a larger group. (Oh, and did I mention they can be a lot of fun?)

Here's my final schedule. Hope to see you there.

Speculative Fiction Writers Cafe

Fri 5:30 PM Stone

Come meet up with other speculative fiction writers. Share ideas, read someone else's work, or just get together to talk about writing. This is a meetup event for writers of all backgrounds. Morven Westfield (moderator), Stephen R Wilk, Cadwell Turnbull.

Fans over 65 Meetup

Sat 4:00 PM Bulfinch

Have you been a fan all your life or did you recently get into fandom? Either way come get together with other fans over 65. Morven Westfield (moderator).

Witches Almanac #39 - New Articles

The theme of the latest issue of The Witches' Almanac is Stones: The Foundation of Earth. Graced by a beautiful cover by Kathryn Sky-Peck, Issue #39, Spring 2020-2021 contains three articles I wrote.

“Holey Stones” — The magickal power of stones with natural holes in the middle.

“Witch Windows” — Why are those tilted Vermont windows called Witch Windows?

“Lead Curse Tablets” — The Romans gave us more than straight roads…

"Lodestones" — The care and feeding of a lodestone.

The Almanac also includes its usual features — Sunrise and Sunset Times, Moon Gardening, the Moon Calendar, Moon Cycles, and Presage (where Tom Lang gives us the climate outlook and astrologer Dikki-Jo Mullen gives us the astrological outlook for the upcoming year).

Other articles in this issue: "Stephen Hawking: Looking through Millions of Tiny Black Holes at the Theory of Everything" (an examination of his natal chart by Dikki-Jo Mullen), "Witches, Bitches, Twitches: William Gray and Witches", "How to Work with the Spirits of the Land", "The Art of Embodying Godforms in Ritual", an in-depth interview with priestess Selena Fox, and much more.

You can purchase The Witches Almanac at your local bookstore, Amazon, and, of course, the Witches Almanac site.

The Kindle version is available from For back issues, visit either site.
