Capclave and food [Oct. 6th, 2013|03:12 pm]
Capclave

nwl

As last year, Capclave has a Guide to the local restaurants.  Since I did the "boots on the ground" part of the guide, I'm happy to answer questions about local food.  My hubby and I looked at the nearest restaurants by walking or by car to the hotel.  There are far more restaurants than in the Guide, but I'm hoping that what we have will be enough.

If you have food preferences/allergeries, we've included phone numbers so you can call the restaurant in advance.

If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, we've included the type of restaurant.

If you're looking for local fast food chains, well, you'll have to get out on the main street - Route 355 - and look.  We didn't include them, but they are available on the street and in Lakeforest Mall, which is across 355 from the hotel.

For those who can't get enough about Game of Thrones as well as food, on Sunday at 3 PM there will be a panel on the food in Game of Thrones.  A cookbook has been written about the dishes mentioned at the various feasts and a panel of local foodies will be talking about, well, food.

See  you there!

The Washington Science Fiction Association is pleased to announce the finalists for the 2013 WSFA Small Press Award for Short Fiction (published in 2012):

"Astrophilia" by Carrie Vaughn, published in Clarkesworld Magazine, edited by Neil Clarke (July 2012).

"The Bookmaking Habits of Select Species" by Ken Liu, published in Lightspeed Magazine, edited by John Joseph Adams (August 2012).

"Bottled Spirits" by Pamela K. Kinney, published in Buzzy Mag, edited by Laura Anne Gilman (June 2012).

"Coca Xocolatl" by Lawrence M. Schoen, published in ReDeus: Divine Tales, edited by Robert Greenberger and Aaron Rosenberg (Crazy Eight Press 2012).

"Good Hunting" by Ken Liu, published in Strange Horizons, edited by Brit Mandelo (October 2012).

"Mornington Ride" by Jason Nahrung, published in Epilogue, edited by Tehani Wessely (Fablecroft Publishing June 2012).

"The Six Million Dollar Mermaid" by Hildy Silverman, published in Mermaids 13: Tales from the Sea, edited by John L. French (Padwolf Publishing Inc. December 2012)

The award honors the efforts of small press publishers in providing a critical venue for short fiction in the area of speculative fiction. The award showcases the best original short fiction published by small presses in the previous year (2012). An unusual feature of the selection process is that all voting is done with the identity of the author and publisher hidden so that the final choice is based solely on the quality of the story.

The winner is chosen by the members of the Washington Science Fiction Association (wsfa.org) and the award will be presented at their annual convention, Capclave (capclave.org), held this year on October 11-13 in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
