Books Bought at WisCon 2004

Sean Stewart, Perfect Circle, hardcover. The first thing I bought at the con. I removed one from the stack at the Small Beer Press table and asked Gavin, "How much money do you want?" Luckily, he did not say, "All of it." I then proceeded to show the book to everyone I encountered. Two of them didn't know it was out and then they bought it, too.

Leah Cutter, The Caves of Buda, bought at her book-release party after my reading that was supposed to have her in it, too, except she had to be at her book-release party.

Briar Rose, Jane Yolen. A second copy, so I could get it autographed.

A Fistful of Sky, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, in paperback.

Burndive, Karin Lowachee. I read most of this one during my seven-hour sojourn at O'Hare Airport.

An issue of Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet that I didn't have, one that had a Jeff Ford story in it.

And I think that was it. To be signed, I brought Caroline Stevermer's A Scholar of Magics, Eleanor Arnason's Ring of Swords, and Patricia McKillip's Ombria in Shadow; I took care of those early, since I had to miss the Sign-Out to catch my plane. (Or so I thought at the time.) I also got one free book whose title I can't remember--I'd never heard of the author--and grabbed a free copy of Nalo Hopkinson's Skin Folk for coffeeandink.

Looked at but put off for lack of room to carry home:
Louise Marley's new hardcover
Anne Harris' new hardcover

Matt Ruff, Set This House in Order, was the Tiptree winner, but I haven't bought it yet.

    I was still a bit sore yesterday because I stepped up workouts, just a little, on Monday and Tuesday. So I went out to lunch with a friend instead of…
