Morning. It's been less than three hours since I got out of bed. Thanks to two cups of coffee, and as many quick walks in the forty or so degree air, i have achieved artificial, and shaky alertness. World Fantasy Con is it's usual, quietly bustling self, replete with the industries name players. L. E. Modesitt just walked by, The Nielsen Haydens are in attendance. David Coe, Kristen Britain, Laura Gilman and Elizabeth Bear are wandering about, Jeremy Larsen was decked out in a zoot suit last night, and Lois Bujold actually remembered me!
I've run into old friends, Sarah and Dan Hoyt, Darwin Garrison, and Kate Paulk. The fabulous ladies of Carpe Libris have brought their wit and wonder to the masses. Gene Wolfe, and Patrick O'Leary are talking next to me. The fabulous Catie Murphy and her husband Ted survived a terror ride back to their hotel last night, and are still speaking to the driver. Jennifer Jackson, and Lucienne Diver are of course turning heads and making agents with lesser lists jealous, per usual. Tempest Bradford, and Jenna Waterford are having a spectacular time and bringing smiles to those with the wit to catch theirs.
Lois Bujold read from chapter five of Passage, the third Sharing Knife book. It's due out the end of April 08.
More news, as I invent it.
