What I’m Listening to Now: Valentine Pontifex by Robert Silverberg
The third in the Majipoor series, this book covers the period about ten years after the events in Lord Valentine’s Castle. The book is performed by several readers, which adds to its variety and effectiveness.
Yeah, I know this report is a little tardy, but still . . .
On October 18th, I spent some of the day at the inaugural HeroCon 2008, a fun-filled day of all things City of Heroes/City of Villains. I went to two panel sessions and one workshop:
- Walking the Cat-Walk: Fashion in City of Heroes
- Getting Your Foot in the Door: How to get a job in the industry
- Making Movies with City of Heroes
I only took 10 photos, none of which are all that spectacular. But I post them here anyway for your amusement and bemusement.
It was interesting to see the wide breadth of ages (and cities of origin) of people who came to HeroCon. I was by no means the oldest person there. That was reassuring. 🙂 There were a lot of couples there, both of whom were involved in the game. (I wonder if there’s ever been a study . . .)
In five hours and thirty minutes Pacific Standard Time, NaNoWriMo 2008 officially begins. Expect only weekly updates here as time permits. As always, you can follow my progress here.
