I'm back, from Worldcon in Montreal - and it was a fantastic time. I didn't make it to as much programming as I'd have liked, but there was business to attend to: the launch of my collection Monstrous Affections, along with ChiZine's other fantastic titles; the launch of Tesseracts Thirteen, Nancy Kilpatrick and David Morrell's entry into the long line of Canadian sf anthologies; and reconnection with a pile of old friends and a bunch of what I hope will be a heap of new ones.
I have some pictures. First, of ChiZine's launch party at the Delta Saturday night.
