Earthquake in China

Death toll currently at almost 10,000. The quake's epicenter was just 100 km north of Chengdu, where the International Science Fiction Festival I attended was held last year. I'm hoping for the best for all my wonderful friends there.

News is everywhere on the net, including here.

Nancy Kress and Michael Swanwick -- two of the people I was in China with last year -- have received word from contacts there. No one involved with Science Fiction World (our Chinese publisher) was hurt, apparently ...

I have got a confirm from an editor of Science Fiction World magazine that all the editors there are safe.

Those giants pandas in chengdu and Wolong (much closer to the earth quake center than Chengdu) natural centers are also safe.
