I’ve been working a fair amount today, but I did make time to go to Karen’s paper. Naturally she took the opportunity to talk about the excellent From the Notebooks of Dr. Brain.
The awards banquet went very well. The food was good. I got to sit at the Locus table (thanks Charles!). The awards went very smoothly with no one hogging the podium.
We’ve been running a Match It For Pratchett collection all week. According to Farah we raised $1054.
The BSFA Award results came in just before the banquet. Farah spent the pre-banquet reception going around the usual suspects asking us to keep them secret because she wanted to announce Brian Aldiss’s win. It worked. The expression on Brian’s face when Farah made the announcement was priceless.
As the con is now over, we’ve all been working hard on getting drunk and the conversation has deteriorated accordingly. As this is a family blog I’m not saying any more, except to note that I declared a BASFA Meeting and Greg Frost owes me double pun tax (we don’t actually have a special rule for toilet-related puns, but don’t tell Greg that).
I’ll still be around tomorrow because it was cheaper to stay another night than pay the Sunday air fare. Also I haven’t seen a ‘gator yet.

Naturally, I’m curious to know what Karen wrote. Is it possible to receive a copy of the paper?
Hey there, Mr. Faust, great to hear from you. Karen has been traveling back to Houston today. She does read my blog, so hopefully she’ll respond herself. If you don’t hear anything after a few days bug me and I’ll chase it for you.
Hi! The paper I have an electronic copy of isn’t quite the one I gave; that one has lots of hand-written scribbles on it, updating it with things I heard at the conference. Give me a couple days to get it updated and I’ll send it right out to you. Should I send it to the email address on your blog?
Thanks for your interest, I’ll be very interested to hear your comments.
