Congratulations! Congratulations!

(The Ditmars were nicknamed the 'Tartus' (sp?) 'cause they rather looked like it. Bookend material.)

>Are they suitable to be made into a set of earrings?<

Ellen, Jeff, Luis, Geoff, Tessa, Ben - thanks! I had a blast at Conflux, where I met Ben and Tessa, and other wonderful people including Anna Tambour, Russell Kirkpatrick, Glenda Larke, Jon Blum, and Sean Williams, who gallantly helped me defeat an evil piece of chocolate cake. Thanks and congratulations to the organizers for putting on such a well-run, entertaining con.

Earrings - LOL! They're about 3/4 the size of house bricks. They do look rather like the Tardis, and weigh about the same.

All cakes must be eaten! They're evil, especially those of the chocolate variety. All your cake are belong to us!

Kirsten,

Congrats along with the rest.

I noticed Etched City was Fiction Pick of the Week in the "Age" today. More kudos!

Thanks Robert, Jeff, Anne! Anne - ta for the heads-up; I don't usually buy the Saturday Age, since it's such a big heavy monster...
Robert - I hope I can write future books, congratulation-worthy or not

They said you were brilliant and wonderful and it would be a terrible shame if you didn't go mainstream at some point.

Pbbbbbbbt.
