• “The smartest historical sci-fi adventure-romance story ever written by a science Ph.D. with a background in scripting 'Scrooge McDuck' comics.”—Salon.com
  • A time-hopping, continent-spanning salmagundi of genres.”
  • “These books have to be word-of-mouth books because they're too weird to describe to anybody.”
    —Jackie Cantor, Diana's first editor

Ever since reading Dorothy L. Sayers’s GAUDY NIGHT (to say nothing of Colin Dexter’s wonderful Morse novels), I’ve had an ambition to be invited to speak at Oxford University. Am thrilled to the marrow to say that this ambition is about to be realized this March: I’ve been invited to participate in the Oxford Literary Festival, and will be presenting at noon (well, 11:59 a.m., according to their schedule) on Sunday, March 22nd. Hope to see some of you there!

My talk is part of the American strand at this year’s Oxford Literary Festival, and is presented by the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing.

The Southern Kentucky Book Festival is “one of the state’s largest literary events. Held annually in April, the Book Fest draws thousands of readers of all ages who welcome the occasion to meet their favorite authors and purchase signed copies of their books.”

The Southern Kentucky Book Fest partnership consists of Barnes & Noble Booksellers, Warren County Public Library, and WKU Libraries. These entities collaborate throughout the year on a variety of literary events designed to fulfil the mission of the partnership: to encourage reading and the love of books, and to be a positive force in promoting literacy in the region and state.

Additional appearances by Diana for 2015 will be listed here as soon as they are arranged and confirmed by Diana. Thanks!
