Not Niagra Falls, or even Buffalo, but Boston. Filled out the info for Boskone, so I hope to be a panelist, maybe have a literary beer or such too. We missed last year's Boskone on account of our return engagement as Special Guests at SheVaCon, but we're baaaaccckkk... and in theory Meisha Merlin is too, since Crystal Dragon in hardcover is scheduled to "break" at Boskone. Made reservations for Boskone at the Sheraton, too. Hey, a room is good, eh? Conventions at Sheratons have been a big part of my life since...1974? DisClave and DisCon II were held at the Sheraton Park, a monster of a hotel... those were my first two conventions.

Donato -- our cover artist for Balance of Trade, Crystal Soldier, and Crystal Dragon -- is the Art Guest this year at Boskone, so we're really looking forward to the artshow. Having traveled to conventions all over the US I think it's fair to say that Boskone's artshow is, year after year, among the best regional artshows in the country...

Busy week it was, with some strangeness: started on my exercise regime of a couple 1/2 mile to 1 mile treadmill sessions a day to get ready for COSine and altitude; Max! the cat who had the stroke is doing much better this week while Patia myPatia, who recovered from a bad illness a couple years back, is in a funk if not worse, which I caught from her at one point during the week...blue, blue, blue. Scrabble is coming to terms with the new kid, and Mozart acts like she's always been here.

Waiting to hear from Rolanni -- they may extend her shift today -- and have a bunch of cleaning up to do, catbox fun, harroo....

Among appointments and such yesterday we visited the Maine Mall in South Portland, where two copies of Sword of Orion are now signed and stickered at Borders while the Mall Waldenbooks swears they have 5 copies due in. The B&N in Augusta had a couple so-just-in-they-were-on-the-process-desk copies of Sword of Orion as well, which are also now signed...

Patia is sitting nearby, requesting some brush-and-such. This is good news, so off I go.
