OSCon part 1 | Main | You see a turtle in the desert . . .

July 10, 2003

OSCon Day 1.1

I just finished my signing in Powell's convention bookstore booth . . .

Holy.

Fucking.

Shit.

I had a line the whole hour!!!


I was / am stunned. Powell's actually sold out of the books they'd brought to the con in about 20 mnutes. Luckily, I'd brought some additional copies with me, and I SOLD OUT OF THOSE TOO!!!

(I understand that they still have enough for the signing tonight, but if you're planning on picking one up there, you should probably reserve it, or get there early.)

The best part of this whole signing today, however, was the ratio of "I like Star Trek" to "I love your writing" people: it was about 2:7.
