Home and Dry....
Home. After 3 weeks of travel, 5 airports, 3 hotels, 2 rental cars, numerous dinners and lunches out...we're back. I can't believe we did so much!! AND survived! Bubonicon was a blast-a small but very cool little con in Albuquerque NM. You could feel the energy buzzing there!!! Hung out with writers Jane Lindskold, George R.R. Martin, Melinda Snodgrass(who I got the know after a long time of passing in corridors at SF cons!) Dan Abraham, Ben Bova(and his charming wife) and many more. Also caught up with artist David Martin who I have only known about 25 years.
I'm really exhausted. Had only four days to ourselves out of the 20 spent working-the other end of the business is talking, teaching and shmoozing in general. I saw so many Big Name SF writers my head was spinning after 3 weeks.
Even the Writers/Illustrators of The Future week/event was just energized and full of great faces to see. Spent some time with Charles Brown of Locus Magazine. Caught up with Aleta Jackson-a pal who of many years who is now designing spaceships that REALLY work in the Mohave Desert.
More soon. I need to re-acclimate with my home surroundings!!!
