I’m back from summer vacation, having gone to San Francisco, Reno (for WorldCon) and Las Vegas. Great trip! Here is a photo for each city:
Alcatraz in the background. I actually missed visiting Alcatraz in SF because the tickets were sold out for at least another week. Ugh. But had great ramen at Tanpopo in Japantown, saw relatives, and rode the cable car.
Me, on the Throne of Swords at Renovation (WorldCon). I didn’t do any panels but did participate in the Clarkesworld authors reading and the Edge Books book launch (reading from my story in Tesseracts 15).
Vegas was terrific, as always. It costs an arm and a leg but is totally worth it. I finally saw Cirque du Soleil’s O, and it was stunning.
