Come say hello to me at San Diego Comic-Con!

I'm heading out at the crack of dawn tomorrow to the Nerd Prom, aka San Diego Comic-Con International. I'll be working there on behalf of Hyperion Books, managing their booth and giving away their swag and keeping the Vogons from having a poetry-slam anywhere in the vicinity.

If you're coming to Comic-Con, please feel free to stop by Booth #1507 and say hello! (But do leave your pitches at home, I beg you. I'm there as a mere booth lackey; if you disrupt my swag-shilling by flaunting your manuscript at me, I'll have no choice but to toss you to the Klingons. Fair warning.)

Hope to see some of you there!

Stunned: Locus Magazine's Charles Brown has died.

I am still reeling from this news: my friend and colleague Charles Brown, founder and long-time publisher of Locus Magazine, passed away yesterday on his way home from Readercon.

I'll have more to say about this later... still wrapping my head around this.
