4th Street Fantasy Con., flaming trampolines and eating fruit bats

It's Sunday midnight after a long but thoroughly enjoyable Fourth Street Fantasy Con… I've started a New Secret Project which I've been furiously working on this evening so will likely update more about programming and details upon the morrow…

For now, however, let me rave in general sweeps about how awesome it is to have dialogues with Steven Brust, Elizabeth Bear, Scott Lynch, Skyler White, Max Gladstone and (my favourite new panelist this year) Seanan McGuire! We touched on everything from carnival rides to flaming trampolines to Watership Down done with sharks to diseases caused from eating fruit bats. Also many things about writing. In a word, Delightful.

The best thing about this con (as anyone in attendance will likely agree) is the informal and personal nature of the discussions. It is not a 'con' as in 'convention' but a 'conversation' (or at least that is how it was put to me, and I find that to be quite accurate). It's a dialogue between everyone, an open and sometimes musical discussion about anything and everything and it is just… splendid.

Not to work on Secret Project and will update more when rested…
