I’m back from Worldcon…


… but down with the most miserable cold/flu/whatever.

It actually hit Sabine the last day of the convention, which resulted in us staying in Kansas City one extra day, since she was in no shape to even ride in a car for an eight-hour drive, much less share the driving (we drove cross-country, remember?).

And during that extra day — yep, I caught the same damn bug.

Fortunately, it hit me not quite as hard, so between the two of us, we managed to slog our way from motel to motel back across the country, setting aside all plans for exploring the sights on our exciting road-trip.  We finally reached home Thursday night and collapsed in a DayQuil/NyQuil haze until, basically, now.

Still got it, but I thought I’d let people know that we made it home safely.

I do have stuff to say about the convention — but later, sorry, not now.  Must dose myself with even more NyQuil and sleep soon.  I’ll just say that I met many old and new friends, all my panels went well, and I actually had people show up for my autographing!

Also, many of you made a point of speaking to me and letting me know how much you liked my work — Thanks so much for that!  It means a lot.

My reading was also well received, and fun to do.   If you’re interested in what I read, it’s the same bit that read at Boskone last year, which I posted online in September.  (Just click here to get there.)

Thanks.  Must go.  More later.
