Aaron Allston posted a new blog update today with info on a couple of short stories he’s completed. Unfortunately both anthologies will be a bit hard to obtain. First up is “Defenders of Beeman County” which will be included in the Rayguns Over Texas sci-fi anthology which will be sold at LoneStarCon 3 in San Antonio, Texas in 2013. The anthology will have 20 short stories all done by authors in Texas. Editor Richard Klaw has posted some of the featured authors and their stories here.

The second story is “Green Room”, a superhero story set in the Strike Force universe. It’s set to be a part of the Time-Traveled Tales follow up anthology at Origins Game Fair. According to Allston this “is the first story I’ve written in which most of the narrative consists of two old men sitting in recliners arguing with one another. No, really.”

If you’re a die hard Allston fan, then good luck in tracking down these two anthologies when they come out.

Aaron Allston posted on his blog today that he’ll be the Guest of Honor at the Origins Game Fair this year. The Columbus, OH convention is still a ways off (May 30-June 3) so there’s plenty of time to plan ahead. Allston posted his full schedule for the con which you can read here. It’s worth noting that Allston will be there with fellow Star Wars authors Timothy Zahn and Michael A. Stackpole.

Beyond Origins, Allston mentioned he’ll also be trying to attend ArmadilloCon in Austin, TX; Celebration VI in Orlando, FL; and Dragon*Con in Atlanta, GE.
