L.A. stories ...

A fine day in Los Angeles -- gorgeous weather.

Carolyn and I had lunch with Marc Scott Zicree and his wife Elaine; very pleasant. (Marc and I both just lost Hugos -- me for novel; him for dramatic presentation short form for his New Voyages Trek episode "World Enough and Time." Among his other writing credits: the wonderful Deep Space Nine episode "Far Beyond the Stars.")

We then went to the Getty Museum, and, oh my God, was it beautiful -- something like a cross between what Heaven would look like if it existed and the cloud city of Stratos from "The Cloud Minders" on Classic Star Trek -- absolutely gorgeous architecture, and breathtaking exhibitions (including a wonderful temporary one on Bernini).

Then we stopped in at Barnes and Noble, then it was off to dinner: with Andre Bormanis and his girlfriend Miche; Andre was on the writing staff of Enterprise and Threshold and it on the staff of the new series Eleventh Hour, based on the UK series of the same name. Terrific time.
