Tags:australia, calendula, conventions
Good day yesterday. I had a panel on pacing with Peter Brett, Howard Tayler and Carrie Vaughn. That was a fun group to work with in front of an audience. And quite the large audience, as well. See here and here for audience reports. Later on I did a reading, attended by 12 or 15 people, including a very buff-and-cool looking andyhat.

Otherwise the day was lunch with Carrie Vaugh, a kangaroo steak dinner with calendula_witch, danjite and khaybee, and of course BarCon in the Hilton with the usual suspects. Very nice conversations with Carol Ryles and Paul Haines there.

Mostly, though, I was tired. I did manage to stay up until 9. Today, a panel on steampunk (real soon now), and then a signing wherein I will be sharing a table with George R.R. Martin. That ought to be interesting. Otherwise, catch me in the Hilton bar.

I signed at a table with Vernor Vinge, George, and Bob Salvatore once. Vernor and I had a fabulous conversation and bought each other's books.

I also recommend getting up to do line security for George when you are bored. *g* It helps the time go faster.

It was an awesome panel and lots of fun. You weren't getting much audience commentary because nobody wanted to interrupt you all.

Vaguely jealous that you're signing with GeorgeRRMartin, but glad you're enjoying yourself. And I suspect you won't get much chance to talk to him except maybe backstage before/after.

Everyone's ljs and twitters from Worldcon have made me wish I could travel, but I'm still not Ok'd to even get on a plane. Next year perhaps it'll be somewhere closer and I'll have money to go.

Please tell me kangaroo steaks don't taste like chicken.
