As we have for the past several years we spent the Memorial Day weekend attending Conquest in Kansas City. Had a really good time, got to see a lot of friends , incoluding some I hadn’t seen in several years. Hustled a few books at the Yard Dog Press table as well. I didn’t have that much paneling, but I did do two critque sessions for people in the writers workshop, I hope I helped them out with my thoughts on their work.
Got to chat briefly with George R.R. Martin and also with Howard Waldrop. Howard is writer who deserves to be a lot more well known then he is, the man is just so blinking talented and is such a nice guy as well!
However, the highlight of the whole con was Saturday and it wasn’t anything to do with moi. Sue was the fan guest of honor at Roomcon, an annual party that Jimmy H. throws there every year. I was very proud of her. I took pictures and as soon as I figure out how to do it I will post them on this blog.
