Well, here we are on Sunday. We each got matching stuffed kangaroos from Angela Render because we found her. That’s a nice way to start the day!
One of the nice things about getting here before the dealer room opens is that we get to chat with the other folks before the crowds arrive. Interesting and knowledgeable folks!

UPDATE 1: Well, it was one of those whirlwind days where we talked with so many people, attended sessions, chatted in the halls, and made the rounds, that we didn’t have time to blog, tweet, or FB very much. But it sure was great! We got to meet and chat with Nathan Lowell and some of the other authors at the Ridan table, which was very nice. They had some exciting things to say about the state of SF/F publishing. Between magazine publishers like Flying Island Press and book publishers like Ridan, there’s an incredible new market emerging. The new magazine and book publishers are basically re-establishing the concept of the midlist. They are basically using technological innovations to fill in the gaps that traditional print publishers have had to abandon out of the necessity of protecting their bottom lines. The field is wide open, folks! It’s a great time to be writing SF/F . . .
