Wonderful article in the NEW YORK TIMES about Jack Vance:

It is nice to see one of our genre’s few authentic masters finally getting some recognition from the mainstream press. I agree with most everything that’s said here: Vance is not only a great SF and fantasy writer, he’s a great writer, period, and deserves a place in the canon of American literature.

Great blog post from TIME magazine’s TV critic, urging HBO to pick up ICE & FIRE.

Needless to say, I share his hopes.

Back home, safe and sound. Finland was great and I enjoyed my visit to Estonia as well. More on both later. The journey home was endless and exhausting, and god, I hate the TSA, especially the ones at Chicago O’Hare. Petty pseudopolice drunk on their authority. But never mind.

Tons of emails, a mountain of mail, much sleep to catch up on. I’ll be digging out from under for a while. But lots of cool stuff happening too, on all sorts of fronts. I’ll post what I can when I can.

Next trip on the schedule is worldcon in Montreal. I have my program for that, and will post it here soon. I’m hoping to complete a few more chapters for DANCE before taking off. Still tugging, slashing, and cursing that Meereenese knot.
