There's a new artbook coming out this summer called RENDEROSITY and in it, I mentioned Roberson and said he'd be "a force to be reckoned with in years to come."

Looks like "years to come" starts right now.

All I gotta say is....I called it! :-) :-)

Seriously though, congrats, man!!! I'm really happy for you. One more notch in the belt for Lou Anders' LIVE WITHOUT A NET....the anthology that keeps on giving.

John (Klima) - Nice to meet you, too! I just hope the face fit the name.

Lou - Sheesh. No pressure, right?

John (Picacio) - Hey, thanks for picking up that last Dead Dog round, before sneaking off for the night. Class act.

Jeff - Thanks. And sorry about that whole squid business!

Ann - I'm sure I don't know what you mean. I am shocked, *shocked* at the suggestion that I might attemtp to circumvent convention security and procedures, more commonly known as "The Ring of Steel." Thanks, though!

Minz - Don't think I've forgotten about you, you bastard. Just see if *I* take you to all the choice local joints when you're down in Austin next year. (Okay, I probably still will, I'll just try to get Tor to pick up the tabs...)
