Back to the World

Readercon was good, but some of the joy leached out when I heard about the Trayvon Martin killing verdict at breakfast on Sunday. It was terrific but exhausting to see so many people, as usual. My panels all seemed to go well.

I bought three books: Conservation of Shadows by Yoon Ha Lee (I also got to attend her reading), My Dear Watson by L.A. Fields, and Wonders of the Invisible World, a new collection by Patricia McKillip.

My post on Patricia Gaffney's To Love and To Cherish is live today, over on my pro blog.
