Just after the last update i had my third event of the day. A well moderated, and actively engaged assembly of panelists that had me blithering along while; L Jagi Lamplighter, John C Wright, Allen Wold, fired off insightful answers to Peter Prellwitz deftly asked question. This was fun, and like most good panels we could have easily and entertainingly done another hour without noticing.

I then went out to lunch with the Chuck Gannon and we talked about all things large and small over some delightful Vietnamese food from a little place called “Vietnam One” just down the street from the hotel

Later, i got to what I expect to be the only let down of the weekend, the hotel ‘restaurant’. I think it must actually be something of a safe employment place for the mentally disabled as it took me forty minutes to get my burger the first time, and then another fifteen to get it the second time since it came out very, very, wrong.

After that I got to the panel on sub genres, Steve White, Julie Cochrane, Charles Gannon, and Jason Cordova were entertaining as hell and even stayed on topic.

  • You don't mention your pictures. I'm crushed.

    Don't believe him. He was fascinating! (At least to us writers, who find the agenting point of view intriguing! — but then much of the audience at cons consists of writers and people who would like to be writers, so they might have been as fascinated as I.)
    Cheers,
    Jagi

      PS. I love the name Onyxhawke. The novel I'm currently working on has Archmages all named after hawks, Merlin, (didn't use Sparrowhawk), Kestrel, Gyrfalcon, etc. — Onyxhawke would be such a good mage name!

        It's a nickname i got a few years back and its stuck.
        Thanks for the compliments.
        You gonna come up to Lunacon next year?

          Probably not, alas. We have very limited babysitting options and we try to use them wisely. Right now, we make Ravencon, Balticon, and Philcon — hopefully, we'll be able to do more a few years from now, but we take what we can get! 😉

            Some other time then, I should be at Raven next year, and i might do Balticon if i get an invite.
