Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell

I first learned of this novel from an article in NYT Magazine ("Susanna Clarke's Magic Book" John Hodgman, 8/1/04). It made me curious enough to want to read it. Perhaps even a little excited about it. I wonder if there will be any promotion for it at DragonCon, even though the book is being marketed towards a broader audience (the Harry Potter adult demographic).

A little toy robot told me that the author's U.S. tour begins here in Atlanta.

I've just RSVP'd. And now I'm a teensy bit more excited.

Let the hype machine roll on! I'm proud to do my part. I'll be sending you and Scott an email about my rough schedule @ DragonCon this weekend.

I just printed out the pocket program (you'll get a more user-friendly hard copy when you pick up your pass - we're getting ours tomorrow after work) so I can start to map out my schedule.

Anne McCaffrey is going to be here AGAIN! I'm very pleased.

Sorry my going to a geekfest offends your hipster sensibilities. 'Cause you're not AT ALL a geek about your music or anything. ;)

I was merely pointing out a opportunity that you might of overlooked, what with all the dragons and all. Sheesh... :-)
