Spent a bunch of time talking to Jess Nevins about the economics and sociology of 19th century railroad expansion. He also explained to me about railroad pulps, a now-forgotten genre of publishing. Lunch with Jess, Chris Roberson and a few other folks. I did a signing this afternoon with Howard Waldrop and Lawrence Person, and of course my Howard interview is coming up tonight.
Some of us bandied about the possibility of doing an anthology of mobile home stories. I need to haul out my old Bubba Yaga story, about the witch who lives in a single-wide that runs around Texas on chicken feet.
I love conventions.
