I have solved my camera battery problem. It seems my MacBook does not have enough juice to recharge the camera, even when plugged in. So it’s a good thing I brought the wall to USB charger adapter for it. Packing Heavy for the win!
Since I had gotten the lovely Gail Carriger in red before, you know I had to get her in green. “I’m a one-woman Christmas!”
Steve Jackson, God-Emperor of Steve Jackson Games, my old Nova Express proofreader, one of the people that helped me move endless boxes of books into my house, and an all-around cromulant guy.
Harry Turtledove. “So Harry, how many books did you write this year?” “Just part of one.” “Just one? You? That’s unpossible! Did all your daughters graduate from college?” “Yes.”
His Majesty’s Subject Cory Doctorow, throwing up sum mad n3rdc0rz gangster signs, yo.
Adam-Troy Castro. In retrospect, it was probably a bad idea to snap his pic during that proctology exam.
John W. Campbell Award winning author Lev Grossman.
Joan D. Vinge. With the light behind her, this actually came out much better than expected.
John Picacio, who was robbed AGAIN!
Guest of Honor Tim Powers, who was not only Steampunk before Steampunk was cool, but was Steampunk before it was even Steampunk.
Michael Swanwick and Gordon Van Gelder.
Lois McMaster Bujold.
Yvonne Daily, an old friend back from the halcyon days of the Austin BBS community, where we all hung 300 baud modems from our belt, because that was the style at the time.
Phil Brogden, ditto. This isn’t perspective, his hand really is eight time larger than a normal human’s.
Phil & Yvonne going for the full Irish experience.
