Today is the airport Powell's book signing with Mary Robinette Kowal and me. We'll be there from 5 to 7, so come on by if you're in the area. Tomorrow afternoon I'm off to Seattle for Mark Bourne's funeral Thursday morning. the_child is going with me. (If you're going from Portland and could possibly give her a ride home Thursday afternoon, please contact me.) Thursday after the funeral, I'm off to Rainforest Writers Village , where I'm really hoping to decompress. It's been a heck of a week already, and this is only Tuesday.
