ramblings from a mad fedora'd writer
back home just long enough to leave....
I had a great time at Treklanta, though I was only there for Friday and Saturday day. The VIP Champagne reception was delightful, and mostly afforded me the unparalleled chance to chat with Bjo and John Trimble, which was a joy and a privilege. I sold a buncha books, I got to meet some wonderful new people and also hang out with old friends. And for my one-hour panel, I read the first three chapters of A Furnace Sealed, which were very well received.

Special thanks to Eric Watts, the Treklanta guru, who went out and got me a sympathy card and got most of the staff and several of the guests to sign it. I was beyond touched. Stuff like this is why I continue to support Treklanta in any way I can, and why I love Eric like the uncle I could never get rid of.

Thanks also to Laura (who took me to and from the airport, and gave me a place to stay Thursday night), Cassidy (who was a magnificent table assistant today), Chris and Tina (and Tina's brother, who came all the way from Seattle!), all the staff, all the guests, all the attendees. I wish I was still there partying with everyone.

Instead, I buggered off at 4pm, stood on the longest security line in the history of the universe (45 minutes to get through!), boarded the plane, got home, was met by Wrenn, and we came home to two cats who missed me.

They're gonna miss me some more, as we're getting up stupid-early tomorrow to go to western Pennsylvania for the wake (tomorrow afternoon) and the funeral (Monday morning). We're coming back home Monday afternoon/evening, and then celebrating my birthday with lunch at Sylvia's in Harlem on Tuesday.

At some point, I may even get the TOS Rewatch and the SCPD novella done..............

45 minutes!

Try being a non US citizen. An hour, plus.

The wait had absolutely nothing to do with where one was a citizen of. 40 of those minutes were spent on the line to get to the part where they check your boarding pass and ID.......
