Went to John Kessel‘s GOH talk last night, which was lovely and charming and funny and erudite and made me wish I’d had a chance to take a class from him. Maybe someday I can talk him into coming to Chicago and doing a weekend seminar for the SLF or some such. Andy Duncan also did a very sweet intro for him. I love this field and its people.
Today is my panel from 4:15 – 5:45: Panel. Power, Politics, and Speculative Fiction. Should be interesting! But before that, Roshani is arriving in town for a little mini-vacation; she’ll stay with me and I’ll introduce her to lots of SF/F writers. I may have sent her a long reading list before the con, which I’m sure she hasn’t had time to actually read yet, oh well!
