View From a Hotel Window, 9/20/23: SFO

Turns out, you can stay at the airport when you’re at SFO. Which is what I did, because I have an early flight the next day. However, I did manage to get into the city, and had a good time, with the event and with seeing friends. It’s always nice when that happens.

Tomorrow, or rather, later today: Wichita, Kansas. Which is the first time that I will ever be in that fair city, so I am looking forward to that. I hope to see you guys at the event at 6:00 p.m. at Watermark books!

  1. It was a great event in San Francisco
    I enjoyed it very much including the story from the cruise
    I must ask , does someone from Tor travel with you or do you meet a different person at each stop?
    Logistics must be crazy

  2. You can’t make it out in this photo, but if you zoom in on that hill (which we call sign hill), the white splotches say “SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO THE INDUSTRIAL CITY”. That’s where I grew up. Back when that sign was made, “industry” was companies like Bethlehem Steel and Dubuque meat processing. Now the industrial park is dominated by Genentech.

    Back in the ’80s I could leave my house about 30 minutes before a flight and make it on to the plane.

  3. I really wanted to go to the Wichita event, but it is three hours from where I live. Next time come to Kansas City!!

    I have my copy of Starter Villian, but I refuse to read it until after I’ve listened to the audiobook. Your writing combined with Wil Wheaton’s narration is pure gold!

  4. I wish I could have made the San Francisco event, but I was foolish and didn’t try to reserve until it was too late. I’ve learned my lesson, and will sign up RIGHT AWAY next time. So…write fast! Safe travels!

  5. Wasn’t able to attend the SF event but celebrated your arrival by cracking the cover of Starter Villain, an excellent consolation prize.

  6. If it was rush hour and there was an accident bringing traffic to a halt would that count as a carpark?
