Norwescon was great. Lovely people, good snacks, cooperative weather. Who could ask for more?
I met Katt Leeds (who has amazing oil-painting/reality/portrait skills), and she did a sketch of me in exchange for a copy of Spacetrawler (if you need a portrait commissioned, seriously, consider her). I sat across from Elizabeth Guizzetti, whose e-novel “Other Systems” came out a week ago. She fed me chocolate eggs and then I bought a copy of her book (those two things are not related) (um) (I think).
I had a long interesting conversation with Micheal Duquette about art, his sculptures (amazingly made, and out of mostly found objects). Talked “mystery novels” with Vandy Hall (who does lovely drawings, blown glass, and sculpture) and who gave a me a list of detective stories to read (listed below) (I’m very excited to check them out). I also sat across from Vivien Weaver (and her nice friend, whose name I suddenly can’t recall) who had her book “The Wicked Instead” available (which I also look forward to reading).
Annnnnd…. lotsa other people. But I think that’s it for my con report. Hope you had a great Easter, religously-oriented-or-ignored. And here’s those mysteries. :)

- Elizabeth Peters
- Nevada Barr

- “Cat Who Barks” (can’t find what this might be for)?
