I’ll be making a public appearance in Winnipeg later this month, wearing my author hat.
As you can see from the last lines on the poster, the presentation is open to the public, and free. If you’re curious about the stranger side of aviation, this might be for you. I’ll be running a slideshow and talk that goes through the alphabet of strange flying machines from Autogyros to Zeppelins. Hint: the really weird stuff is in between.
Some of this ties into my science fiction writing. My short story, “The Emperor’s Dragon” looks at how the Chinese could have achieved powered flight a thousand years before the Wright brothers, and my novel, Avians, is about aviation on a world without metal or fossil fuels. I’ll have copies of the book with me, if you’re interested.
Happy New Year, and maybe I’ll see you there!
