One thing does make me wonder, though: What is it with the food in this year's con suite? In the past, they've had bread and cheese and boiled eggs and chips and salsa and actual jugs of milk and cream for the coffee; this year, it's all little bags of peanuts and individually wrapped crappy candies and stuff like that. It's worse than when the green room at Arisia went overboard with the vegan and gluten-free stuff -- at least that was still real food.
The only excuse I can imagine is that the hotel instituted some new rules that the consuite people didn't feel up to working or negotiating their way around. If they're just cheaping out, I'm disappointed in them.
In other news -- if you look at Duncan Eagleson's work in the art show, you can get a sneak peek at the cover art for our planned re-publication of our YA novel Knight's Wyrd.
