In addition to the usual stress of preparing for a family vacation, compounded by the projected path of Gustav–which means we have to batten down the hatches before we leave, I also received my revision letter from my editor last week, so I’ve been eyeball-deep in work for the past few days.

But now, the bags are packed, the house is clean(ish), the Stuff in the yard has been put into the garage or into the bottom floor of my Lair, and my manuscript is in my carry-on.

Therefore, since I have a few seconds of breathing space and I never did post any pics from Worldcon in Denver, I will give you all the one picture that pretty much sums up how fun and cool my Worldcon was.
