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!
