My reward for appearing at the UW bookstore last night: I snagged a copy of the final Ægypt volume, Endless Things, which had showed up on their shelves a week ahead of schedule. I’m now faced with the wonderful dilemma of whether to read Endless Things immediately or go back and reread the rest of Ægypt first. Whoo-hoo!
P.S. The highlight of last night’s event was Eileen Gunn reading a slash parody bit about Kirk and Spock giving birth. She feels it’s unpublishable because of the whole copyright-and-trademark-infringement thing, but it’s so damn funny I hope somebody will take the chance.
