All The Things!
Lots going on over here:

- Had a very fun if kind of tiring first WisCon - and apparently pontificated like a jackass, as is my wont.

- Blabbed a bit about whether to discard "Golden Age" SF.for an SFSignal post.

- Sold Polish rights to THRONE OF THE CRESCENT MOON to Proszynski! This is the first foreign sale for the novel! WIll I be geeked to see my book listed here? Yessirzie Bob, I will! [Also, Random Saladin Fact: I am 1/8th Polish.]

-I'm living in a little box on the cover of Locus!:




Also day five of quit smoking try #2,345. And the twins are really digging their new toy house.

You?

More or less free money + a book w/ my name on it in a language I can't read = awesome. First time, so pretty geeked!

All of this is seriously cool. *g*

And your kids continue to rock. I think you know that, but I like stating the obvious.

Hee. Thanks. They've been in cranky mode the past few days. Temperamental little gods, they are.

sorry i didn't get a chance to say hi at wiscon! i spotted you, but whenever i'd see you you'd look really involved in something, so not a good chance for a brief awkward "hi! i know you from the internet!" conversation. :)

Aww. Next time know that's more just my sleep-deprived zoned-out look, and just come over :)

Aw, the kids look so happy, and alert, and industrious, and talented! I have suspicions about their paternity.

Grats on the Polish sale! First of many, I hope.

Eh. The way they play with books and fart and eat noisily, I know they're my spawn.

Nice photo! (And the kids, of course, are adorable. But you already know that.)

Thanks and thanks. You aren't going to be at Worldcon, by any chance?
barb_krasnoff From: barb_krasnoff Date: June 6th, 2011 05:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
No -- we don't usually do Worldcon, unless it's close by. We will be at Readercon, though, if you're planning to be here...
