Yesterday was another fun day. I got up, worked out, blogged, but didn't have time to write before my 10 am reading with Howard Andrew Jones. We were very lightly attended, but still had fun. Then I was loose for a while until a lunch date with Elizabeth Bear and Scott Lynch, which we took offsite and spent a bunch of time catching up. The afternoon brought the panel on the trilogy as a base unit of fantasy, with Joe Abercrombie, Saladin Ahmed, Bradley Beaulieu, Michelle Sagara West. (That's a heck of a panel crew, by the way.)

After that it was barcon, hanging out with all kinds of folks including the delightful Amy Sundberg, except for a break for the mass signing, which I spent most of chatting with Cat Rambo and, well, signing things. Dinner in the bar, and later I hit Saladin Ahmed's book launch party before packing it in. I also managed to score a copy of his new book, Throne of the Crescent MoonPowells | BN ], which I am excited about reading.

This morning I am packing and leaving too early to really have any Con time to speak of. To my chagrin, I found that I left the 9VDC adapter clip of my MacBook Air's airline/car charger in the socket of the plane I flew out on. I sure hope Apple will sell me that as a replacement part, otherwise I'm going to have to spring for a whole new one. My shuttle for the airport leaves in a couple of hours. I'm sorry to miss the last day of Epic Confusion, as I've had a great deal of fun here.

Is it one of these?

charger

I have one that I never use--you can have it if you like. I'll trade it to you for one of your books.

Maybe the book you consider your favorite.

Send me a message with your mailing address, and I'll send out the adapter tomorrow.

Safe travels home! With a con name like that, methinks leaving behind a bit of a phone charger's only par for the course. In fact, it could've been far worse!

I definitely chose poorly between stealth and speed. ;)

Also, I think theferrett took the picture. He was sitting across from you, anyway.
