We're at Boreal, the French language sf convention held in Montreal: some of us come to the con even though we don't speak French.
Last night after a panel on genre and literary movements, a bunch of us sat around in a pub. Conversation turned to Cory Doctorow's new book Little Brother. Michael Swanwick, Jo Walton, and I all raved about what a terrific book it is. It is not often that one sees writers in a group pushing to get a work in edgewise about how wonderful someone's new novel is. I think this bodes well for the book's reception.
Today I take the kids over to Chinatown and David spends the day attending the program.
