THE COLD SPELL
ARTIST (TO DEPARTING VISITOR): "Very good of you to come to my little show."
VISITOR: "Oh, it's terribly worthwhile; so warm in here."

Here we have another signed piece, by one Frank Reynolds.

It's comforting to know that the names of these creators live on.

It's also comforting to know that bohemian artists and the bubble-headed public have existed for centuries, and will continue to do so into the foreseeable future.

Final WFC report!

Congratulations to this year's winners, Gene Wolfe, Jeff Ford, M. Rickert, and the firm of Datlow & Windling.  Full results here.  I note in passing that two of the winners, Ford and Datlow, had their pictures taken with Flat Stephen. 

Speaking of which . . .  Flat Stephen with three-name wonders David Anthony Durham and James Patrick Kelly.  Work your award-winning magic, Flat!

 

Yet another of Flat Stephen's admirers!



Nick Mamatas "horns" Flat Stephen while Jeff Ford handles pouring duties.



Flat Stephen recommends Acacia Pinot Noir!


Here's Flat with a guy whose name I don't know but whose sideburns evoked Asimov and Elvis equally:  Elvismov!


And now some non-Flat pictures.  Paul Park read a terrific story called "A Family History," elements of which were auctioned off on eBay prior to the story's composition.



Not too clear, admittedly, but that's Gene Wolfe reading "Mute," a post-apocalyptic story.



Ysabeau Wilce reading from her WFC-nominated novella, "Quartermaster Returns."  She handed out spiffy fans to her spiffy fans!


John Crowley reading from his novel-in-progress, Four Freedoms



A great con, but somewhat exhausting.  I'm glad to be back in NYC for a few days to decompress a bit before heading back to Delaware!
