bad girls marlene make my day

hot war who could ask for more? six minutes on a cold winter morning.

You *and* Scott are GOHs at Icon? Hunh!

Even if Felicia and Dani are moved long before then, I may have to come down....
That's not a release date.
Oh, I'm sorry. I was unclear!

This is not publication dates. It's a list of my deadlines by which to get stuff done.

I expect the earliest AAtE will be out (assuming Sarah and I manage to get it nailed down this time) is 2015 or 2016.
Sorry I missed you at TFB -- so much Stuff going on, I never made it to any of your panels.

I never even saw you through the crowd. *g* We're even. Maybe PXCC?
We'll definitely be there -- I think I'm supposed to panels, in addition to my usual ninja origami-ing.

Seeing Nine Worlds on this list makes me smile every time. I'm looking forward to meeting you.
Oh, yay for more Pandemonium!!
Have a lovely time at Vericon!
Is it tomorrow yet?
OMG YOU HAVE HEARD NUCLEAR FURNITURE. Ok, squee over. I have a very soft spot for that album, having listened to it with my father over and over again while driving to and from extracurricular activities.
I am ridiculously fond of it, despite its DEEP FLAWS.

If nothing else, the line "THERE WILL ALWAYS BE ASSHOLES" assures it a place in my personal canon.
Any time you want to expound on this album I'd love to read it.
I suddenly realize that I am going to be In Phoenix for Phoenix ComicCon. I will have to stop by and say hi!
That would be awesome. Mr. Lynch will be there too.
Hurrah! I'll look forward to seeing you both!
So when can I get you up here to the Upper Valley of NH/VT to my bookstore for a signing & you to get in some climbing? Hmmm?
Send me an email! matociquala at the gmail place.

I am traveling a stupid lot this summer, but will make time--either in May or this autumn--to come up. And in Autumn, we might be able to figure out a date when you can have a Scott, too.
Perhaps autumn would be best, then, as you can bring a Scott, I can coax a Patricia from her cave in town-nearby-with-Ivy-League-college, and I may even be able to bribe some other SF authors up and we can have a big(ger) event here and get a crowd in from NH and VT fandom for signings/readings. Lemme start asking around and then we'll start with some date guesses of 2 or 4 different dates until we have one that works for everyone.

Damn, woman, you're busy!!
To get a Scott, early in the week of October 5th is the most likely time frame. Or mid-to-late week of October 19th.

Yeah, it's a nutso year.
