At long last, here it is.  Most of my stuff is concentrated on Thursday and Friday, but I’ll be around all weekend.  It’s a big weekend:  we’re celebrating the launch of Amaryllis and Other Stories as well as the newest Wild Cards novel, High Stakes (I’m not in this one, but Earth Witch is!).  I’m looking forward to seeing people with new books in hand!
