Carolyn and I have been in Los Angeles since Sunday. Yesterday, we fought the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad traffic in L.A. to visit the terrific store of Barry R. Levin, the world’s leading rare-SF dealer, then had a a very productive lunch with my film agents, Vince Gerardis and Eli Kirschner, then headed off to meet a producer interested in optioning one of my properties, then went to the house of my old high-school buddy Asbed Bedrossian for a great evening of pizza and conversation.

Today, it was lunch with Anne McCaffrey and Sean Williams, then off to DisneyLand (where we ran into David G. Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer, plus their children, and Karl Schroeder and his wife Janice, and their daughter).

Then it was time for the first round of Worldcon parties, all being put on by cities bidding to host future Worldcons. I spent a lot of really enjoyable time talking with Mike Resnick, as well as with Lou Anders, and with Paul Cornell, who is up for a Hugo this year for the Doctor Who episode “Father’s Day.”

Bed now; the con starts tomorrow …
