catching up post-con

VeriCon was lovely as always, with a smattering of enjoyable panels and many fine meals with many fine friends. I could, however, have done without the precipitous drop in temperature halfway through; I remember our discussions back in the day about whether to hold the con during intersession or spring break, and I still think the arguments for intersession are good ones . . . but man, late January is a brutal time to hold a con, especially in a building like Sever, where (despite years of our best efforts) people blithely ignore the “airlock” signs on the front doors and pass through them in such a fashion as to release gusts of freezing air upon the reg desk.

But I am, after all, a delicate southern flower.

I got to read “The Last Wendy” at Milk and Cookies, though, which pleased me immensely. I do so love stomping on people’s childhoods . . . .


While I was away, the ninja editors of Abyss & Apex put up their new issue, which includes the most melodramatic (and melodramatically-titled) story I have ever written: “Letter Found in a Chest Belonging to the Marquis de Montseraille Following the Death of That Worthy Individual.” It’s posted in its entirety for free, so enjoy.

    You don’t have to be a delicate southern flower to be blasted to kingdom-come by cold air at the registration desk… In fact, sometimes, you have to crochet yourself a pair of handwarmers just to be able to hand out name badges. (;

    *suppresses flashbacks to iEEE in December with the 6-degree temps coming in through the reeeeeeeeaaaaaaalllllllllyyyyyyy slow automatic doors*

    Totally random…

    … but could you have Kyle drop me a line when he has the chance?

    Melodramatic, yet completely awesome. I love your short stories.

    I second the notion that you do not have to be a delicate southern flower… I am Norwegian and am grown up in a country that has 9 months of winter and then 3 months of not-winter and I still think it was cold.

    And yes, you requested on your web page, short on who I am: I am not a creepy stalker. At least I don’t consider myself one. I met you at Vericon, I was one of the people from Smith.
