And the weather is perfect, because it’s San Diego and why wouldn’t it be.
Tonight: Come see me and Cixin Liu at the Clarke Center for Human Imagination as we talk about our work, worldbuilding, and all manner of things science fictional! Here are the details. We’d love to see you there!
For the sake of Scalzi tradition, I do hope there are cars parked amid those palm trees.
Ah, yes, that looks like the standing-under-a-giant-blue-bowl San Diego sky I remember.
Yes, I know San Diego is not close to Ventura County, but house is further from the Camp fire east of Chico and we’re having air quality issues.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the tacos.
Actually, I was thinking the weather was a bit chilly for my taste. Yes, there are reasons I moved from Chicago, and my thin blood is one of them.
I’ll see if I can fit your event into my busy schedule…
Holy cow Cixin Liu and John Scalzi both! Gaaaah! Lucky San Diegoans!
See you there. Trying to work out the hotel from the view.
I HAVE BEEN digging in to The Zombie Robert Heinlein Rises From the Grave Yet Again to Annoy the Politically Correct from December 10, 2007 by John Scalzi, and it is full of unique insights into you, John, and much fun to read through….good luck in your writing career.
Did you read Death’s End? How did you find it?
That was fun. Hope you enjoyed your visit to UCSD.
I spent a year working for a San Diego company, visiting once a month. It rained. Every. Single. Time.
La Joya is nice though.
Lucky you. Because we’re in New Orleans and it is in the 40s with a boat load of rain.
Do you know if it’s possible to buy a CD physical version of the audiobook of Head On? If so, where from? The only one I can find online is sold to libraries only.
My parents really liked Lock In’s audio book, but don’t like to download.
I would have, but you sold out the venue! You continue to fail at having a failing career!
My wife and I were looking forward to this, but sad to say we won’t be going, as the organizers have declined to offer any support to the hard-of-hearing :(
From the pic you took San Diego looks tropical. I don’t remember that as a kid but it was a long time ago.
Sigh. I drove through thick snow to get go work this morning.
Is there a transcript or recording of the event? I want to hear you and Da Liu talking together!
