Last night’s meeting at the Albuquerque Science Fiction Society was a heckuva lot of fun. For me, at least. Not sure how much the audience enjoyed it, but I sure had a blast. What a terrific group!
So friendly and welcoming—is it any wonder Bubonicon is so popular?
My friend Craig actually had a review copy of The Coldest War there, so that was the very first time I got to see the really-for-real final book. That was neat.
AND! Speaking of which! I know I said in yesterday’s blog update that The Coldest War would become available on Tuesday. (July 17 is the official release date.) But it’s not like I’m J. K. Rowling or that American Tolkien guy, so does it really matter if they ship a few days early? Well, I’m not exactly a contender for any bestseller lists, so probably not.
Nevertheless, I was a little surprised when my friend Corry sent me this picture from Seattle yesterday afternoon:
That’s right: SUNLIGHT was spotted in a Seattle garden. Quickly, Corry — drop that book and go make some Vitamin D!
