Best of times with Lou Anders, Irene Gallo, Vincent & Michelle Villafranca, Donato Giancola, Todd Lockwood, Marc Scheff, Jim Minz, Jennifer Heddle, Deanna Hoak, Mary Robinette Kowal, Cherie Priest, Farah Mendlesohn, Kate Baker, Stu & Stephen Segal, Mike Resnick, David Alastair Hayden, great artists, authors (shoutout to all of the Pyr authors), fans, and friends new and old -- too many for my bleary memory to remember on the fly here.
Really enjoyed meeting the mighty Sidebar Nation crew for the first time. Terrific cats. Love listening to their podcasts. They're the real deal and know their stuff. Did a short fun interview with them. Hopefully down the road, we'll chat again at greater length.
I exhibited in the D*C Art Show and of all of my pieces for sale, only one will be coming home. Everything else on the walls sold out. Plenty of small prints sold and I sold out of all of my art books before the last day even began.
Shoutout to Stu Segal for coordinating the Hugo Awards Breakfast and Stroll with the Stars. The man is tireless. Special thanks to all who make Dragon*Con run so smoothly, including John and Anne Parise who ran the Art Show. Congrats on a huge success and an amazing weekend.
Here's a link to a Flickr set of photos from this year's D*C.
