Sterling amongst the Children’s Books

Here are some photos of Bruce Sterling from the reading in Chicago last night. I’m still getting used to digital photography, so forgive any weirdnesses. I do like the ease with which I could correct the woozy 15 degrees of list to port of the photos with Graphic Converter. Digital cameras and editing are the best thing that ever happened to mediocre photographers like myself.
Note that in both of these photos, Bruce is flanked by all manner of brightly colored and completely non-threatening children’s books. Due to his right are some kind of tie-ins for the movie Home on the Range. I find it all amusing in a non-specific way. It seems like it should be funny, but I couldn’t explain why.
