So this arrived today. Actually published towards the end of last year.
I had nothing to do with the text—but they asked me to use my photo on the cover, and I agreed, so that is my photo (from Midamericon, the 1976 Worldcon in Kansas City).
Wow; Hennepin County Library has Doc Smith’s Lensman series (mostly in the Old Earth Books facsimile edition), but no Skylark or anything…except…ah, there it is, says in the listing what the English title is:
Cuộc săn đuỏ̂i trong không gian by Smith, E. E. (1986?)
Vietnamese Adult Nonfiction Book
Which is apparently a Vietnamese edition of The Skylark of Space!
So, the Minicon 50 photos, such as they are, are finally posted. I was so busy the first three days, and then so worn down, that I have fewer than usual, but I had a great time, and didn’t fret about not taking photos when I didn’t feel like it.
I’ve finally put together the video of Lois McMaster Bujold reading the opening scene of a new Miles Vorkosigan novella (from 5-Dec-2012; I said “finally”). It looks like the novella still hasn’t been published (perhaps it hasn’t even been finished).
It was an interesting experiment in one-person documentary making, and a useful practice piece for post-production (four cameras, one sound recorder).
Wow, we knew they did staff picks, but it didn’t seem likely that we’d manage to reach that level.
But we have! We got email today notifying us, and we show up on the staff picks page.
So send all your friends over to our Kickstarter page to support us! I really want to do the video of the concert, and we need to hit Tier 3 for that to happen.
