World Fantasy Convention 2010

I can sum up World Fantasy Convention 2010 in one sentence:

I talked to a LOT of people.

Or to be more accurate: I talked to a lot of really wonderful, awesome people, starting the moment I checked into the hotel on Thursday night and lasting until I boarded the plane home, with brief pauses to sleep and use the bathroom.

I am going to resist the urge to mention names because I might forget someone, and I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. (I love you all. Really. Especially YOU, person with whom I had a wonderful conversation. Yes, you. You're great.) But I did remember to take a couple pictures so I'll show those...

Yes, I know, I should take more photos. Here's one more:

Learned today: Books are heavy

These are all the books that I brought home from WFC. I took everything carry-on, and I am so pleased that I didn't knock myself unconscious while lifting the suitcase into the overhead compartment.

Anyway, the convention was fantastic. I'm already looking forward to next year.

Special thanks to everyone who came to my reading! You guys rock.

Bordertown! You've got the new Bordertown book! Jealous as I am of your trip as a whole, this is the single most jealousy-inducing aspect of it.

Q: I love World Fantasy. Can't wait for next year.

Laura: Thanks! It was really fun. Lots of awesome people to talk to.

Adam: Hee-hee! Mine, mine, mine! *cackles with glee*
