1. It's antonstrout day! I hope that trout parties hard. I very wisely pre-ordered Anton's book, Dead to Me , in 2007, so I can look forward to reading it soon. I suggest you all go over and buy several copies each.

2. Oddly, I'm more familiar with the listings on the preliminary Bram Stoker Award ballot than I am with the ones on the preliminary Nebula ballot. I can't vote on either of them (yet!), but for the former I suggest that all wise and honorable folks should vote for the writings of Gary Braunbeck and Lucy Snyder. For the latter, I can say that Jennifer Pelland and William Shunn deserve some votage. I'm sure that the other entries must be good too, but I haven't read them yet.

3. I finally read "The Lottery," by Shirley Jackson, the other day. Even though I knew the ending ahead of time, it still made me all shivery.

4. I'm definitely going to Norwescon in March, and Baycon in May, which means not Wiscon in May.

For your viewing interest...
I found this presentation by Joe Haldeman of interest and thought you'd enjoy it too.

But I'll be at WisCon in May. I demand a recount! :)

Oh, drat! Well... how's it looking for World Fantasy this year? Are you in?

Maybe. We're doing three cons this year (WisCon, World Con, and Gen Con), and Ken's getting his master's in computer science, so the convention fund might be a bit diminished come November ... but I'd definitely like to go. The dreamer in me says "Hey! Do you want to be a writer or not? You have to go!" but the realist in me says "Look at that checkbook, dude." You know how it is.
