I wanted to go to Orycon, but things didn’t work out this year. I was set up on panels, but I won’t be there. Too bad. It’s been a bad, stressful week and I would have loved to have gone to Portland, hung out with my friends and generally made a time of it. Maybe next year. The worst part is not getting to see Nicola Griffith and Kelley Eskridge. If Kelley wins the Endeavour Award, I’ll be bummed at my inability to help her celebrate.
