Had a great time at the pub celebrating The Immersion Book of SF. Great friends and authors showed up for some drinks, food, and the conversation was electric. I tell you I was in awe of the High-Priestess of SF&F, Tanith Lee. She is such a sweetheart, a wonderfully warm and friendly person. Writer Al Robertson was on hand, and he is such an intelligent man he almost blew my mind. Chris Butler, Gareth Owens were chewing the fat with Jessica Payne, Stephen Gaskell, and artist Charles Harbour. The wonderful Liz and Deirdre Counihan were there, adding a touch of grace to the celebrations. All in all, a wonderful evening.
On another note, The Immersion Book of SF is selling well, so get your copy.
