Just back from Odyssey Con 2010 in Madison, WI.
--meeting guest of honor Harry Turtledove for the first time.
--hanging out with other guest of honor Tobias Buckell who I haven't seen in over a year.
--dinner with Toby, Steven Silver, Sarah Monette and Lynne and Michael Thomas.
--premiering the first chapter of The Girls with Games of Blood.
--participating in a great panel on the resurgence of sword and sorcery.
--and an end-of-con Thai outing with Toby, Sarah, Nayad Monroe, LaShawn Wanak and Karen Babich.
Discovering that none of the dealers had any of my books for sale. They also stocked none of Toby Buckell's original work, only his "Halo" tie-in, and he was a friggin' Guest of Honor. Seriously not cool.
I did a pretty poor job of photographically documenting the convention, but I managed to get a few shots.

Sarah and I wait for Harry to be brilliant. We didn't wait long.
Harry ponders one of my bon mots. I appear to regret it.
Me with Lynne Thomas, co-editor and contributor to the Dr. Who essay collection, Chicks Dig Time Lords.
