More recently she has also published books about Pagan and Heathen religions and practices. In addition to her multiple novels and collaborations, she has written over seventy short stories. Her best-known works are the Westria novels, and the later books in the Avalon series, which she first co-wrote with Marion Zimmer Bradley, then took over sole authorship of after Bradley’s death. She writes a regular column for the women’s spirituality magazine, Sagewoman.

Rudy Rucker is an American mathematician, computer scientist, artist, science fiction author, and philosopher, and is one of the founders of the cyberpunk literary movement.

    Wow, I really wish I could be there. I’ve ben reading a lot of Rudy Rucker recently, and would love to hear him speak. I consider Mr. Rucker to be a modern Edwin A. Abbott (Author of Flatland.)

    Unfortunately, I’m shooting a wedding that day.

    Maybe I can catch the end of the event.
