Promoting the Cause of the Campbell (Tiara)

The Dayton Daily News ran a big full-page story on my Campbell win today, which was awfully nice, I thought. Even more cool is that they used (with permission, of course) Keith Stokes’ fine picture of me at the award podium, wearing the Campbell Tiara.

The Dayton Daily News ran a big full-page story on my Campbell win today, which was awfully nice, I thought. Even more cool is that they used (with permission, of course) Keith Stokes’ fine picture of me at the award podium, wearing the Campbell Tiara. The caption of the picture even reads “John Scalzi, wearing the Campbell Tiara, given to winners of the award at the ceremony.” Jay Lake and Elizabeth Bear, you can be proud that your Campbell regalia scheme is paying off. Instant traditionosity has been acheived.

I enjoy pie.

John, you’re lovely, it was very nice of the Dayton paper to give you such lovely coverage, your cheeseboardaward is lovely.

GET BACK TO WORK.

How much longer am I going to have to wait for TLC with you goofing around like this?

Congratulations, John! Publicity rocks!

I’m actually pleased you’re posting and working at the same time. I’m usually jonesing for some whatever-age by Sunday so thes eposts came as a nice surprise.

Seriously, man, when is TLC gonna be done? I’m gonna be done with OMW and TGB in like a week or so. For the second time.

Need some help? I find coffee does the trick. Even though my accupuncturist says I shouldn’t drink it. But does she have 4 novels and 3 short stories to finish before she’s forty? Uh, that’s a hell to the no.

The tiara is now on my dresser, awaiting some more formal form of stowage for its emergence into the limelight once more next year, somewhat to the puzzlement of my cats. It looked better on you, dude.
