Andy -- it was good meeting you at Armadillocon this weekend. Hope to see you again in the not-too-distant future.

Josh and Eric, I always say that anytime I go to a convention, I meet at least one new interesting person, if not a new friend. This time, I'm happy to say I've made TWO new friends. It was a real pleasure sharing ArmadilloCon with both of you, and I'm happy to know that I helped make your first convention (both of you being first-timers) a fun time. Like I said, con attendance is good for both the career and the soul; other regional cons that I especially like include ConDFW in Dallas, Bubonicon in Albuquerque, MidSouthCon in Memphis, Oasis in Orlando, and Capclave in the Washington, DC area. All of these are more book-oriented cons where authors feel very welcome and appreciated.

ArmadilloCon is virtually a Night Shade Books boards reunion every year, so that makes it a lot of fun. I had a great time seeing John Picacio, Mikal Trimm, Chris Roberson and his wife, Rick Klaw, Jess Nevins, and Mark Finn (hope I get to see Mark's wife next time; I was sorry I missed her). I got to meet a mainstay of these boards, big-time Packers fan Jim Minz, and to tell Brad Denton "thank you" for his terrific F&SF story from last year, "Sergeant Chip." My one regret is that I didn't find a chance to hang out with Neal Barrett, Jr.; we said "hi" really quick just before I headed off to a meeting and he to a reading, but we never re-connected. Bummer.
