They are, from left:
- The Hungarian version of Redshirts, with a fairly awesome cover;
- A proclamation from the Ohio House of Representatives congratulating me on my Governor’s Award and telling me that by all indications I’m pretty nifty, which is cool;
- The SF Masterworks edition of Always Coming Home, by Ursula K. Le Guin, for which I was honored to write an introduction.
And I got another dozen books or so from other folks, which I will be showing off a little later in the week, you know, as I do.
And how, you ask, was Westercon 69? Well, I had fun, at least! All my panels went very well, and at my reading I’m happy to say that I got my family and fellow GoH Bobak Ferdowsi involved:
We were all reading from a new, never-before-presented short story called “The AI Are Absolutely Positively Without a Doubt Not Here to End Humanity, Honest.” It went pretty well; my daughter was particularly good in the part of Destructor, Ender of All Humanity.
Plus, at Westercon, we had donuts!
So, yes, we had a pretty good time. Hope your July 4th long weekend was also a good one.
