I should note that in this crowd there’s a Campbell winner and a Hugo winner (although the Hugo winner’s face is being obscured by the Campbell winner’s hand), and the woman who read over half of “The Sagan Diary” for me. So this is a talented audience. And a fun one to read to, I have to say. I had a blast here.
I would write more but at the moment I have to pack — turns out I have a 5am wake-up. Suffice to say my first trip to Oregon makes me want to come back again soon. I’ll write more about this stop later, I’m sure.
