Writing from a dubious state of animism at World Fantasy. There was a VP meet up last night, and I made it to bed by 2:30 am Iowa time. So, Dr. Zombie will be on this morning’s panel in about 45 minutes.
It was cool to be at the VP gathering last night. Truths were learned, most importantly that VP XIII has the best t-shirt. The other folks were great, and I enjoyed meeting and greeting, but it felt like coming home to see Sean Craven and Chris Cornell again. I hope it stays like that throughout our careers, XIII’ers!
Seeing Julie Rose is always wonderful. Julie is the best hostess, and I appreciate her leading me around.
Jay Lake has awesome taste in cheese. And I’m really impressed with his taste in people too, as I’m enjoying rooming with Shelly Clift.
I think I must have some things to say about the convention, like a Greg Van Eekhout Norse Code story, and some comments about Jeff Vandermeer’s new book Booklife, but I need to be coherent, cohesive, that sort of thing. Um, yeah.
I miss my sweetie, the graveyard that’ll be in our yard about now, and handing out cowtails, so we’ll see if we do this next year. Columbus. Discover the new world.
