ApolloCon 2010

In space, no one can hear you blog, especially when your blog has been hacked, like we were yesterday morning.

Unfortunately, I was unable to get to it until later that night as I was attending ApolloCon and having lots of fun meeting up with some familiar faces including SF Signal Irregulars Karen Burnham and Scott Cupp; Lou Antonelli, author of Fantastic Texas; Bill Crider (mystery writer and proprietor of Bill Crider’s Pop Culture Magazine); fantasy writer Stina Leicht; A. Lee Martinez, author of Divine Misfortune (everyone who follows him on Twitter gets a free Chrysler Cordoba!); and Locus reviewer and avid book collector Lawrence Person.

I also got to meet others for the first time, including authors Catherine Asaro (The Skolian Empire series) and D.B. Grady (Red Planet Noir).

And, true to my biblioholic ways, I “treated” myself to a book purchase in the dealers’ room: The John W. Campbell Letters, Volume 1, which promises to be a name-dropping orgy of sf goodness.

Sadly, I was only able to attend on Saturday — too bad, I always have fun at ApolloCon!
