I see David Gerrold had a problem with the “door Nazi” (as we both described her) at the Hugo Losers’ party in Boston too — read his 9/22 entry (I can’t seem to find the permalink) to the end — and in fairness and gratitude I should also mention that Vince Docherty, chairman of the ’05 convention that hosted the party, and also an old friend of mine, tracked me down at the Locus table the next day to apologize for the incident, and explain about the crowded room and the clueless door guard. Apology accepted, no big deal; next year in Glasgow.
Hot and dry here in SoCal the past couple days. The Santa Anas have begun. Red flag warnings for fire danger.
