Small World

This evening, we were at the Heffers SF&F Writers do in the Grafton Centre, Cambridge. There were quite a few writers there, and lots of books being sold and signed, or sometimes the other way round.

We bought quite a bit. One item we bought was called Time Pieces, which is a limited edition chapbook, (we have #34 of 500) signed by the authors. We bought it at least partly because someone we know was associated with its production, and yes, she is listed on the copyright page.

No, feorag, not you, though you are listed there too. No, half an inch further down, a certain Maggie Anderson, who was there this evening. She was also the person from whom bellinghwoman took over when starting work in her current job.

(It wasn't till I got home that I noticed Feorag's name.)

Problem of the evening

Coming out with the name Guy Gavriel Marquez.

I blame being in a bookshop where the books of Guy Gavrial Kay were physically closer than those of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Oh, and being surrounded by SF and Fantasy writers, with not a Magical Realist in sight.
