Still Weekending

With our houseguest. But while I am off, check out this article about a recent steampunk cruise in the New York Times. You might recognize a notable science fiction and fantasy author in the pictures. No, not me.

Also, remember: Still time to get in your Reader Requests!

  1. For those of us less clued into how SF / fantasy authors look in steampunk fashions who was the famous SF author featured in these articles?

  2. Ah. I’ve heard interviews with her but haven’t ever met her at con or actually read any of her books (I’m about half a decade behind in my reading… Still haven’t caught to Game of Thrones let alone had time to start new series/authors. Alas the life of a new dad…)

  3. Kowal was my guess even before clicking, based partially on that I’m finally reading (and enjoying the heck out of) her “Shades of Milk and Honey.” (My other guess was Gail Carriger, but I follow her on Facebook and she hadn’t mentioned this.)

  4. I haven’t actually read Kowal’s own series yet, though I own it now! But I’m a big fan of her audiobook narrations for Seanan McGuire’s Toby Daye series.

    And yeah, obstacles to reading/recognizing happen: being a new dad, having a PhD dissertation to finish…

  5. Great photos in general. “Neo-Vintage” is my new made-up word to drop into conversation this week.

  6. Is she perchance wearing the same dress that our host posed in recently?

  7. It sure looks like the same dress to me, davea47.

  8. Mary Kowal had previously mentioned on her site that she was off on a cruise. Naturally I assumed she and John were out pirating the Caribbean as part of the same gang. John, you could so carry off an eye patch wearing, ‘arrrhing’ and rum swilling (well, Coke product), ruffian.

  9. I would so do this cruise..getting my wife to join me though is another story..

  10. Anyone else feel the writing is a little different from the norm today? I dunno, guess I’m just more observant than most. Ahem. (And, hey, what’s with the date showing 2 weeks ahead on my comment? Weird.)

    Anyway, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
