On Tuesday, December 4, 2007, Robert J. Sawyer gave the keynote address ("Science Fiction as a Mirror for Reality") at the Dedication Ceremony of the David J. Williams III Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Collection, at Kansas State University. The collection, consisting of 3,000 items, includes a complete run of Arkham House volumes.

Williams, who lived in Richmond, Kentucky, worked for the U.S. National Security Agency and passed away in 2001. The dedication ceremony was attended by his sister Sara Morgan, who orchestrated K-State's acquisition of the material, in conjuction with Roger Adams of the Special Collections department of K-State's Hale Library, where the Williams Collection is now housed.

Very nice talk, especially refreshing. I just wanted to say, the question from the lady about Star Wars was totally amazingly incredible... (the one about how the last movies where actually 1st in the timeline...)

At least the talk introduced some new readers; I will read Hominids/ thanks for signing the book!
