Lovely dim sum Saturday with the author of Finder and assorted others. Very cool, and thanks to Jed for organizing it. Had fun swinging through the Alternative Press Expo, although I did feel a little overwhelmed by yet another area of publishing that I know almost nothing about. The list of things I know almost nothing about is getting much bigger much faster than I'd really like. Ah well.
Not sure what happened after that -- much reading at Jed's this weekend. Caught up on Strangers in Paradise, Finder and Castle Waiting (since I mostly don't buy comics myself, I tend to binge when I get to Jed's). Read some more Tiptree stories; hope to finish that anthology by tomorrow. But I also had gobs of e-mail to deal with, only some of which has been handled at this point, and I *really* want to finish the Melcher thing today. Also thinking of stopping by BASFA tonight, if I can find a ride -- good for me and the magazine, I think. Jed, sadly, must work. Oof -- feeling a little overwhelmed. Must go accomplish things.
But I did finish one thing today -- a new illustrator store for SH, for Joe Murphy's "Ovigonopods of Love", illustrated by Gavin Schnitzler. Lovely bug porn. You want a mug, you know you do...
I'm also pleased that with this week's new issue of Strange Horizons, we have a story by Ellen Klages...and better yet, it's a story that I heard her read at the Broad Universe rapid-fire reading I organized for the Millenium PhilCon, and recommended that she send to us. So glad that my fiction editors liked it too. Charming tiny story. Also poetry by Tim Pratt, a new astronomy article from Brian Tung, and a review of a new Gaiman book, which sounds like it might make an excellent Valentine's Day present, if you're thusly inclined. Good week. :-)
