Currently reading

Stephen King, Dave McKean
River of Blue Fire
Tad Williams
Canada
Richard Ford
Progress: 36/420 pages

I spent the weekend at When Words Collide, a writers' and readers' conference here in Calgary.  It was fun.  I've added a lot of new authors to my "to investigate" list.  I also spent more money than I should have in the merch room.

 

But I feel like I didn't get a weekend.  Interacting with people all weekend long just sucked my energy faster than I could recharge (and I left early both Saturday and Sunday).

 

Next year's dates are already set and Guy Gavriel Kay will be one of the guests of honour!!  I will be buying my ticket just as soon as they update the website.  And I'm glad to have a quiet week upcoming.
