I’m back home from World Fantasy Convention. Four things I have decided:
1. Flying by airplane is my great annoyance. I wish I could teleport to wherever it is I want to go.
2. I will always, always, read the chapter “Dead is Dead is Dead” whenever I have a completely adult audience at future readings of One for Sorrow. (Thank you Meghan and Karen for suggesting it!)
3. I want more upscale restaurants in Youngstown where I can eat roast venison on asparagus and spiced pumpkin puree, or curried rabbit. Of course without my publisher, editor or agent with me, I’d never be able to afford such dining, so perhaps I should want my publisher, editor or agent to move to Youngstown and then more upscale restaurants to open.
4. I am really fortunate for all sorts of things.
And now off to recover lost sleep…
Wow … this is quite and early post. Glad you got home all right. Nice to meet you finally. And you’re right … “dead is dead is dead” was a great chapter to read. 🙂
yay sex scenes!
Glad you had a very good time at WFC. If you have any juicy details, please feel free to email them to me… I need to live vicariously, remember.
Chris! The reading was fantastic (albeit at a ridiculous hour — but maybe that wasn’t such a bad thing as I think everyone was in fine spirits being nice and sauced by that time :P). Good times indeed.
Great to meet you.
It was great meeting and sharing the bus ride with you, Chris. The long trip seemed so much shorter with great conversation.
And you’re right, that was a great scene to read.
Drop me an email when you get the time.
Thanks Steve, Meg, Derek and Chesya. Chesya, I’ll give you an email real soon. It was a real pleasure to share the time lag with you! And Steve B., I am a perfect gentleman, so of course I have no juicy details, and am unsure of whatever you might mean by such phrasings.
I think the biggest Fantasy you have written is that you are a perfect gentleman! 😉
