KIM STANLEY ROBINSON WILL BE IN DUBLIN IN APRIL

*DIES OF EXCITE*

Seriously, you have no idea. Meeting him is like bucket-list material for me, and I was SO HAPPY to get to meet him at Loncon, because I figured it was a once in a lifetime chance. And now he’s gonna be doing a thing in Dublin in TWO WEEKS and I’ll get to meet him AGAIN. #diesofexcite

In fact he’s doing an entire week of teaching and lectures in Limerick and Ted was like “Are you going to Limerick?” and I’m like DO NOT TEMPT ME! And he’s visiting the ecovillage, where I want to live ANYWAY, so I said to Ted WE MUST MOVE THERE IMMEDIATELY. LIKE BY NEXT THURSDAY! and he was all, “I’ll get right on that.” *laughs* I have a great husband. :)

I do not own the Mars trilogy in hardback. I may have to rectify that by the 10th. And seriously I had this big angst about whether I was bringing all the Science in the Capital books with me to Loncon and I finally decided no just the first one because weight allowances and I’ll just have to be happy with that AND I AM but now omg I will get to have the other two signed and #flailswithjoy

The first time I read at SF in SF, we were hangin' out in the bar and Terry Bisson (who cofounded the readings series with m'wife) called me over and said, "Chaz, come and meet Stan." And I was all quiet and shy and didn't say much because hullo, and inside I was all HOLY COW KIM STANLEY ROBINSON CAME TO MY READING...!

There once was a man at a con,
Whose books were completely spot on,
We learned about Mars,
And Science, and Stars,
Just one more, oh no, it's now dawn!
