Hello, loyal readers and everyone coming over for Mental Floss! I’m on a very tight deadline (my second science fiction novel is due February 2), so I’m not blogging about cemeteries as much as I would like right now.
However, the announcement of the next two Death Salons came out. Did you see it? These are absolutely amazing events that explore death and our relationship to it from every angle: from exploring cemeteries, assisting the dying, after-death rituals, art, music, and much more. You will be amazed! Here’s the link to the announcement: http://deathsalon.org/future-events/
Also, for those of you interested in the lecture I gave at Death Salon: San Francisco about the missing cemeteries of San Francisco, the video is now online. For a small fee ($15), you can see all the lectures of that mind-expanding day, including mine. That’s four hours of lectures, total. Here’s the link for that: http://thegooddeath.storenvy.com/products/11700000-death-salon-san-francisco-videos
In the meantime, I’m hammering out a space opera called Kill By Numbers, which should be out in September, thanks to Night Shade Books. Cross your fingers for me — I need to hit that deadline!
