BACK FROM ARCHON 31

My flight from St. Louis to Ft Myers, FL landed at noon. It's 141 pm. I haven't unpacked but I'm blogging. Go figure.

Q -Why didn't I blog from the con? A - My brand new Sony Vaio died.

Q - Is this going to be a great recounting of what went on at Archon? A - No. Read my first line. I just got off the plane. I'm exhausted. But they say a picture is worth a thousand words...

Autographing session with Barbara Hambly. (!!!!) We had lunch Thursday and I can't wait for her Anne Steelyard series to come out. More on that later...















Saturday's panel with Elizabeth Moon (who is funny and delightful and just all around wonderful), me (behind toy dog--will explain that later, also), Carol Berg, Richard White, Joy Ward, Janni Lee Simner















Stacey Klemstein (cutie redhead on far end) on panel with Rachel Caine, Rae Morgan/Monette Micheals and others.














Vic Milan (who is a hoot) and my agent, Kristin Nelson on a beginning writers panel.










And now for the fun stuff:











I also had dinner with Jacqueline Lichtenberg and Jean Lorrah, and was on a panel with them as well. WHAT A THRILL! Briefly, Jean has a wonderful, warm smile and sparkling eyes. Jacqueline is one of the most elegant gals I've met--BUT when she smiles, she's an imp! They're both beyond brilliant them and meeting them was top notch.
Hugs all, I need a nap... ~Linnea

  1. Oh, that Stormtrooper is such a studmuffin. I'm going to have to make a costume like that for my husband. First, I have got to finish my Klingon dress!

  2. Looks like you had a fabulous time. Love the pictures. The costumes remind me of all the ones I saw at DragonCon last year.

    So, dear Captain, are we going to maybe see you at the aforementioned DragonCon one day? Or perhaps WorldCon '08, in Denver?

  4. Stacey and I talked about Dragoncon and even doing Archon again. A lot depends on where I am on deadlines (this year has been perpetual and was a bad year to do cons). But yeah, we're considering it, trying to get Kat (Isabo Kelly) to go, too. ~Linnea
