Amazing Con of Readers


Readercon = awesomeness.  I think my two favorite panels were the first and last I went to. Generation Dark and the Magic and Myth of Culture.

Some things that I remember:

'Porn for the blind! Porn for the blind!'

Meeting Becca and Alena (penguinkye and aamcnamara) and vash137 and many other people.

Kafteeklatches. Very cool, especially when you go to one with the amazing Sarah Monette and Elizabeth Bear is there and then cleverly go to one with Elizabeth Bear and Sarah is there.

Zombie babies. Zombie babies under the table waiting to infect you.

Kirk Poland Bad Prose competition is hilariousness incarnated into a panel of funny people.

The near miss of hyperventilation when I realized that Sarah Rees Brennan(mistful) was there and conversation occurred between us. Similar moments with cool people like blackholly, ellen_kushner, cassandraclare, truepenny, and matociquala.

Huge room full of books. Disappearance of money. No connection between those things, I'm sure.

I'm sure there are tons of things I've forgotten. Next time (because there will be a next con) I will need to take notes.

Just to let you know, instead of the lj community (which I was having trouble getting organized), I've decided to do the NaNoWriMo through yahoogroups. (This way we'll all get emailed directly). Here's the link: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/nanowrimoaug/

Also, I emailed you an invite yesterday, so feel free to join the excitement!

Hugs :)
