Not going gentle into that good night....

Right.  So, tomorrow I'm going back to L.A. for the first time in about eight years.

It's a remarkable confluence of all my careers.  First I'm conducting two concerts with a local orchestra, the Montage Civic Orchestra, in two cities.  Second, I'm appearing at the world fantasy convention at least briefly.  Third, I am "taking meetings" and all you Hollywood people know what that means.  There's even a remote possibility that the 25-year-old dream of a film adaptation of Vampire Junction might finally happen.

The Third Act of Somtow's Life is entering the final chase scene.  I don't know what will happen.  Will film, music, or novel-writing win out, or will there be some bizarre conflation of the three?

I guess we will know soon.


  1. Good luck! As a Canadian admirer of your music (who knows next to nothing about your novel-writing or film-making), I can't help but wonder what the "bizarre conflation of the three" might turn into: a Sci-Fi horror opera movie? One can only hope.
