A review of "If This Were a Romance" — Short story in Love and Rockets by me and calendula_witch.

A hilarious and decidedly NSFW conversation with the_child: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]

alumiere asks how do you know her — Interesting question. How do you know me? Through the blog? Reading my fiction? Have we met in real life? When and how?

Book page origami — Cool art. (Via willyumtx.)

The Museum of Scientifically Accurate Fabric Brain ArtAs featured in Science, Knitting Help, and the National Review. From here in Oregon, no less. (Via MH.)

Former Spy With Agenda Operates a Private C.I.A. — Hmmm. (Thanks to my Dad.)

?otD: Really, why did you eat that?

Hmm. That last link makes me wonder about a particular connection of mine...that I've mentioned to both you and your dad.

Hmmm. Could be.

I started to follow your blog first. I found it one of the best around for writing process posts (and still do). I also liked the cheese posts. Then I fell in love with your short fiction.

I did meet you once. We were introduced during the blur of the World Fantasy con at Saratoga Springs. We shook hands, and I was so generally starstruck (it was my first World Fantasy) that all I could manage to say was "I like cheese." =D You, being both gracious and professional, responded with a very enthusiastic "So do I!"

I believe I met you in the bar at Norwescon when your hair was very short and you held your personal energy very, very close. At least, that's my first conscious memory of you. I don't even remember what year it was. Who knew what history would follow? :-) I regret none of it.

Definitely through lj, sometime last year. My memory fails on what the first post was though. I haven't met you IRL yet, but I've promised drinks/food and hugs if you get to LA sometime.

Just before Thanksgiving, a friend recommended your blog on my boyfriend's Facebook when he posted about having colon cancer. I started mining your blog for all the cancer & chemo info. I got to know you a bit in the process and "friended" you on LJ because I think you are a pretty cool guy and you have interesting things to say about a lot of subjects. I find that following your writing progress is both inspiring and intimidating. I bought "Love and Rockets" (kindle version) a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it; I will definitely read more of your short fiction and I may try to sink my teeth into a novel of yours this year.

AotD: Because it was on the South Beach phase 1 list.

We met at the Writers of the Future workshop. It was nearing the end of the week, I was feeling lonely, you put your arm around me and earned my eternal loyalty. :)

I "met" you at Worldcon in Melbourne. I was one of Howard Tayler's minions and you were both on the "Keeping pace: Maintaining momentum in fiction" panel on the Friday.

You may remember me, if you remember the guy with the mohawk in the front row.

However, I'd heard your name mentioned many times by friends who absolutely love 'Mainspring'. It's on my list.

As for why did I eat that? Because I have no willpower, and it was tasty.

I met you at Foolscap a few years ago (didn't introduce myself, didn't catch your name, we were out in the lobby), then ran across your blog a year or so later -- but I didn't connect the two until you posted a photo of yourself a few months after that.
