No moss grows on Lynda Williams, as she tirelessly travels from convention to book fairs to science fiction events promoting the Okal Rel Universe. These pages describe her travels and those of her team members, recounting past events as well as heralding upcoming appearances.
Lynda's adventures have included interviews on CBC radio, panel discussions at sci-fi conventions and in-depth profiles on literature websites. In early 2000, she organized a suspenseful sword fight between five time Western Canadian Fencing Champion and Okal Rel author Craig Bowlsby and Devon Boorman, winner of over 40 European martial arts competitions. Steel clashed as the warriors dueled for supremacy. Although no blood was spilled, this duel was a fitting celebration of the fierce spirit of Okel Rel and a glimpse of the perils of the challenge floor.
