I got to spend time with Little Red Reviewer, Andrea, and she put up with my lame history lessons on 19th Century Columbus. She got to meet and greet some authors she really likes (fuzzy photo in which no persons can be identified, not published here). Also we enjoyed the most important panel at any convention:
I met the Apex Peoples! *\o/* yah! And I only stumbled over my few lame words only a few times, embarrassing only myself, I think. Jason Siezmore and Lesley Connor:
I got bags of books which was TOTALLY UNINTENTIONAL I tell you. Here are two from a publisher new to me. I met them at the panel on How to Put Together an Anthology and really liked what they had to say for lots of reasons which I will get into hopefully with a guest post later:
I found the Ohio Archaeology peeps! Another Yah! This is a fuzzy photo of Dr. Bradley Lepper, curator of archaeology with the Ohio Historical Society, mid-lecture on one of two lectures that both blew my little mind. One on the genius geometry and astronomy of the Mound builder peoples in Ohio and the other on rescue dig of a mastodon and the incredible archaeology & paleontology results from that dig. http://apps.ohiohistory.org/ohioarchaeology/
John Joseph Adams is super nice and humble and polite, and he signed my Kindle. http://www.lightspeedmagazine.com/
I won a book at a publisher party:
Time to bike to the library, see you later, Darkcargoites.
