Post String Enough Days Like This Together And...
on: March 10, 2013, 15:58

So, this is how I spent my Saturday.

I went to the launch of Julie Czerneda’s new book, A Turn of Light. It is over 800 pages, but I am undaunted (I’m a big fan of Thomas Pynchon) and very much looking forward to reading it. Julie was awesome about my unusual request for a photo (what resulted will appear somewhere at some undisclosed point in the future).

I met some people I haven’t seen in a while, which was great. I spoke to J. M. Frey about her next book. I spoke to Adrienne Kress about her current book (I raved about it, actually – expect a five star review when I have the time to write it). It was good to see Peter Halasz, a great supporter of Canadian speculative fiction and fellow Borges fan. Of course, there were other wonderful people, too numerous to mention.

As you may know, I am a recovering shy person. I have also, for much of my life, subscribed to the Marxian notion that I would not want to belong to any organization that would have me. Still, I’m beginning to feel, however tangentially, connected to the Toronto speculative fiction writing community. It’s a nice feeling – they’re a great group.

Then, dinner with my Web Goddess and a movie, which, in this case, was California Solo, a small independent film starring Robert Carlyle. A really small, film. Quiet, and small. Slight, one might even say. Still, Carlyle is a great actor, and it was fun to watch him work in a straight drama again.

All in all, a wonderful day.
