marthawells: (Reading)
I had a great time at AggieCon this weekend. Friends came in to stay with us, and I did fun panels with Katy Stauber (who has a new SF novel, Spin the Sky, coming out soon), Seanan McGuire (who just had new novel Discount Armadgeddon come out), Jody Lynn Nye (who has a new book Myth-Fortunes, coming out soon that's illustrated by Phil Foglio, Todd McCaffrey, and Lou Antonelli. We had great Mexican food, Middle Eastern/Greek food, and topped it off with a birthday dinner for a friend on Sunday night.

I bought a Doctor Who t-shirt, the one with the Van Gogh exploding Tardis image. (Speaking of DW, the BBC put up a trailer for the new season this morning.)

Also got to see the poster for the event that the Cushing Library Special Collections is doing next year in March. They have George R.R. Martin's papers and they're going to be doing an exhibit for his work similar to the one they did last year for the Science Fiction/Fantasy collection in general (my photos of the previous exhibit are in this post here.) This is very cool, as Martin has been an AggieCon guest in the past (he was guest of honor for AggieCon 17 in 1986, when I was con chairman.)


Anthology kickstarter: I have a story in this kickstarter for a fantasy anthology, along with Lynn Flewelling, Harry Connolly, Juliet McKenna, Robert Mancebo, and Julie Czerneda. The way kickstarter works, if the goal doesn't get met, the editor doesn't get the money and the book doesn't get produced. The minimum buy-in is $5.00, which gets you an ebook version of the book if the goal is met. (If the goal isn't met, you don't pay and nobody gets anything.)
