I been hook on the books Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle write together since I pick up a copy of Mote in God's Eye, back in High School. I since then read books they wrote separately and Find I always enjoy Niven, but Pournelle is not my cup of tea, without Niven as a co author.

Since I been reading SF/Fantasy I been lucky to get to meet a lot of writers, so I'm currently hunting though my collection for all the Niven and Pournelle we have in the house. Hopefully I will find some time during this years con to get them sign too. Therefore the yearly plug for BSFS.

With this year being in Honor of Heinlein Centennial, Niven and Pournelle are the guest of Honor at this years Balticon41 in Hunt Valley Md. We already sold out our block of rooms at the Hunt Valley Inn and most of the hotels withing a 15 minute drive are book full due to several other events happening Memorial Day weekend.

I am up to my ears with things that I need to get done for this year con. I actually was given a staff position to handle any one who needs ADA access, last week, since someone remember me speaking up last June. That should teach me to never speak up again about wanting to help others.

Any typos from now until June are due to being a sucker for volunteering.

Why does this have to be on the other side of the country dang it!!! Two of my other favorite authors right there! Crashlander was the best book ever, and Pornelle's Spartians series was awsome!

Either that, or because you hit LN's Irish Coffee bar (assuming he is, as usual, running one). Smiley: laugh

While I would give both arms (...or just one ARM, heh) to be there this year, it's probably going to be a while before I can scrape up the vacation time to go there rather than, like next year, Las Vegas.
