All in all, this was a pretty good con. I was heavily involved in the programming, and enjoyed the panels I was on. The most fun was the “Hard Fantasy” panel I was on with Larry Niven. He was a very articulate, interesting man, and had a lot of good things to say about the nature of using magic in fantasy novels.
Friends from the Con:
Eldon Thompson is a great guy who released a fantasy novel from Harper the same month that ELANTRIS came out. Go check out his website!
John Hemry, fellow JABberwocky client. His books sound really interesting–half military SF, half legal thriller.
Kat Richardson just sold her first novel to Ace. Congrats!
Anyway, another con in the bag. Everyone start getting ready for next year–we’ll be going to Worldcon in LA.
