Okay, back from DragonCon where I really did try to come up with some good pics but ended up mostly with shots that looked like I took them in a cave. One thing that was really fun, though, was getting autographs from James Edward Olmos and James Callis for my daughter. She’s a HUGE BSG fan. The fan ardor is contagious. When I got up to James Callis, I blurted, “My daughter is a big Stargate Atlantis fan.” Without missing a beat, he said, “How does she feel about Battle Star Galactica, luv…” He is so friggin' cute!!!
He and EJO both signed a photo—on James’ side, he wrote: “It’s all his fault.” EJO wrote, “It is not my fault. It’s his. So say we all.” My daughter will freak when she sees it!!!
Anyway kudos to Derek Tatum who arranged the UF/ Dark Fantasy track. To Carol Malcolm who moderated almost every panel and had EVERY book written by the authors present—including all fifty or so of Rachel Caine’s who writes under about six different pseudonyms. She was awesome. To Jackie Kessler
and Caitlin Kittredge
who let Carol and I hang out with them. I had a great time. I was pretty nervous before the interview with LKH, but she’s so nice (and tiny). I felt like a giant next to her.
Okay, the rest of this will be pics from DC. Now I’m not a graphic novel fan (except for the Buffyverse, of course) so I don’t recognize most of the characters. But boy, everybody else did. Steampunk was very popular and I got one good shot.
Two things before I forget: the big book news I guess this week was Stephanie Meyer’s saying she might abandon the last Twilight book after it got pirated and posted on line. See the story here
The second is that Legacy is being discussed at the B & N book club as a September subfeature so drop in and join the discussion. For some reason, I don’t think this link
is working so you may have to cut and paste.
Enjoy the pics:
Yes, this is a person...
You can't tell in the pic, but the rat on her shoulder is in costume!
