Fourth Street Fantasy Convention

Yesterday I went to Fourth Street Fantasy Convention, because years ago it was a great con where I had some wonderful times. This year was wonderful too, and just like everyone else, I lived in the programming room. As a convention for writers of fantasy fiction, and readers who like to listen to writers talk about their writing, it's the best of it's kind. In fact, it's the only one of it's kind that I know of.

To be honest, I had my doubts as to whether or not they could pull it off again after all these years. But they did it, and I'm glad I went. Today I worked in the garden, transporting my wedding flowers from the garden here to Applewood Cottage where we will be moving to over the coming weeks, but my sister reported that the programming was top notch today as well.

One of the great discoveries was Shadow Run, the best SF TV show that never was is currently in re-runs, and I snuck out before the spoiler because I want to read the episodes without any of that coloring my response. They even have their own CafePress Store for merchandise. So I'm really looking forward to finding time to do that after I get settled into the new house. Where else do fictional characters have their own livejournals? I've gone ahead and friended Elizabeth Bear & Emma Bull because they are the evil geniuses behind all of this. They're smart and cool.
