Went to scalzi's reading and signing at the Powell's in Beaverton tonight. Lots of the usual suspects there, including maryrobinette, davidlevine, kateyule, djonn, and a bunch of other folks, some of whose LJ handles I should remember but don't. Also a full house of scalzi fans. He read the first chapter of The High Castle, which was freaky funny, and gave an excellent serial monolog. He also wore the Campbell tiara (briefly). We're off to McMenamin's now for dinner.
