Back, then off again

Hello everyone! I'm back from a wonderfully productive and inspiring experience at Cato University Summer 2006. I'm enjoying a moment to sleep and repack, and then I'm off to Mythcon 37.

A few notes:

*Eric Walker has a terrific new piece entitled "Ten Overlooked Odd Speculative Fiction Classics" at SF Site.

*Also new at SF Site, Rick Norwood has listed his movie predictions for what is worth seeing during the remainder of 2006, as well as material coming in the next few years, and what is worth watching on TV in August.

Best wishes to you all! I look forward to catching up with you shortly.

If the truth doesn't save us, what does that say about us?
Lois McMaster Bujold, Diplomatic Immunity

The Magic Ring was wildly successful in its day. There are terrific stories of royal gatherings in which attendees dressed as characters from the novel, and it was as popular with the mainstream as with the elite.

OMG! Medieval cosplay! How cool! *wishes she'd been there*

There really ought to be more of that in the world. Like with Congress, say. The US Senate should go to work dressed as Sindarin elves.

That's exactly what it is! In my introduction, I document at least two separate cases of large-scale, novel-related costume events at different places/times, and those were just the royals. Isn't it a hoot!

I think Orcs might be more appropriate for members of Congress, though. ;)
