This was my first time exhibiting in the Boskone art show. Many people had nice things to say about my work, and at least three expressed the desire to buy prints at a lower price point than what I had in the show. And I promised to post information about how to buy my prints via my ImageKind.com store.
David has been posting his photos from World Fantasy Con to my Flickr account. You can see them HERE.
(I am not at the convention, unfortunately. I'm not the woman in this photo. I'll have to ask my husband about the blonde showing him her mathematical tattoos! Update: That's Karen Burnham.)
Tupper Lake, NY:
Westport, NY: sign seen on a "road" that turned out to be so frightening that my kids were begging me to turn around before we saw this sign.
The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, NY, probably just the way the architect envisioned it.
The monkey ran out of the picture before the camera went off.
Here are some other choice pix from the Essex County Fair in Westport, NY.
As seen this afternoon in the kiddie pool in my Westport, NY driveway. Flower the tortoise had had enough of the wild map turtle's exploitive attentions. He only wanted to stand on her back to advance his ambitions! So she flew through the air to put some distance between them. (This is all true.)
I've posted our photos from Readercon 2009.
David G. Hartwell, Charles N. Brown, & Jeri Bishop. Update: LOCUS is reporting that Charlie died last night "peacefully in his sleep on the way home from the convention.
John Clute, Jeri Bishop, Michael Bishop, & Gary Wolfe
Kit Reed, Samuel R. Delany, & Ellen Datlow

A few weeks ago, I thought I'd lost most of the The New York Review of Science Fiction back-issue files because I couldn't fine them on my hard drive. Turns out they were on a different computer in the house. I've been copying them to my computer, so I know where to find them. Looking through the files, I've found some marvelous photos.
Here us the original 1988 NYRSF staff, minus David Hartwell, who took the photo, and contributing editor Samuel R. Delany, in whose apartment we met weekly until Chip got a good academic gig out of town.
Delany telling a story to my then-small son Peter. Peter was quite entranced. Chip was waiting for us all to depart for ReaderCon. (Chip is great with small children.)
Plus an incriminating photo from issue 88, the first issue where we ran a photo section.
With permission, Mary Koth Lutton used a photo of mine as part of the interior package of To Vermont with Love. Here's the cover:
. . . and here's the interior:
. . . and here's my original photo:
I gather it will soon be for sale via Amazon and at CDBaby, the independent music distributor.
Also, some of my other Lake Champlain work is coming out from a book on the art of Lake Champlain from a publisher in Vermont. I'm not sure what the pub date is.
I was trying to take a photo of a cuban tree frog that Peter had found by the pool in Orlando. The frog jumped on the camera and from there, onto my head, where it entangled itself in my hair. Eventually it occurred to me to hand the camera to Peter, who snapped this picture.
