I do not know, and there is every chance in the world for my great and good friend across the water.

In high school, my friend's older brother had a friend who brought photocopied pages of a Bradbury story (One For His Lordship, and One For the Road) which he had copied from a recent Playboy. When the page featured a "Playboy cartoon", he covered them with a piece of paper before copying them. My friend and I always enjoyed a chuckle over that overly-cautious action.

I'll be the short fat guy wearing an ill fitting sport coat sporting a dragon lapel pin.

I don't see anything on my calendar - Falling Upward ends on the 5th.

But one never knows, do one?

Bad timing. The Festival of Books and the Sci-Fi awards thing are the following weekend.

Here is a snapshop of the standing ovation accorded Mr. B, last night at the Sierra Madre One-City One-Book event.

As I am sure many of you know, Sierra Madre was the city the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers was filmed.

p.s. It was nice to meet Mr. and Mrs. Captain Wilder last night.
