IMG_1641-smallThe fun has started!!  And I am ready.


Authors, artists, directors – oh the fun I had today!

First to sit in on the session Science Fiction & Fantasy Literature with David Brin, Jim Butcher, Rachel Caine, Jason Hough, Marie Lu, Jonathan Maberry and Henry Herz was way fun.  More fun was visiting with them all at their autograph session!  Some were cuddly, some were kinda scary, but all in good fun!

Jonathan Maberry apparently was a bit hungry.  Made Jim Butcher wonder whether he should be sitting next to him.  But then Jim had these very scary sharp fingers to protect himself so I think he would be fine in the long run.


IMG_1679smallDavid Brin seemed a little gruff but perhaps this was because he wasn’t quite sure what opinion to have of me yet.

Jason Hough, Rachel Caine, Marie Lu and Henry Herz were all sporting beautiful smiles.  Rachel had this wonderful cover that looks like an old book, but inside?….a computer of course!  And Henry was probably most happy with my choice of a book for him (and Jim Butcher) to sign.

Later I found Peter Beagle for a wonderful hug to round off the afternoon.


Later in the evening a visit with Robin Hobb


followed by a tribute to artist Jeffrey Catherine Jones by Maria Paz Cabardo


All this on the first day!
