Happy Holidays–and Thanks

(Matt, Ann, and Eric. Yes, Cheney and Schaller are nuts.)

Today I’d like to thank everyone who read with me at events and/or put me up (put up with me?) during my recent five-week book tour. Special thanks to my wife Ann, Matt Staggs, Luis Rodrigues, Jeremy Tolbert, S.J. Chambers, John Coulthart, my publishers, the bookstores & other venues, people like Rob Davies who put up posters, and my readers, without whom the tour wouldn’t have been possible.

Sincere thanks and affection to:

    Great photos Jeff!

    Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Yummy Yule and a Sassy Saturnalia!

    Practice teflon spirit! Love and light!

    The clouds! Did you see the clouds yesterday? They waved over each other like coral or…brain matter maybe…anyway, there are never enough pictures of clouds, so thanks!

    Happy Holidays to you and Ann!

    Wow. The list of folks with whom you presented reminds me (along with your name since it appears twice) of BSC Reviews’ top 50 books of the decade list (along with the discussion which talks about Sandra Ruttan a bit):


    But that’s probably mostly to do with the list’s author being on your list :) I smell shenanigans and personal favoritism!

    And Terry Bisson has a website:


    Did he read something? If so I’m dying to know what he read. And Jay Lake. I’ll have to check the back posts on the tour…

    Oddly, Bisson’s site didn’t come up on a google search. I’ll add the link in soon.

    Erm, I only really got to know Brian after he’d already read and commented on my work.
