John and Mary show you their shorts report

That was the most fun ever. Borderlands is an awesome bookstore staffed by people who love the genre and are just plain fun. We had 120+ people come to hear us read and it was a blast.

At the end of the evening, we did improvisational science-fiction from an outline Scalzi came up with. I’m still grinning from the evening. It was like being a rock star.

    Thank you so much for coming out our way and bringing Scalzi along with you. ;^) Enjoyed the heck out of your readings and hope that you will return soon.

    For those who have never had the pleasure of hearing you in person: Ms. Kowal has the most amazingly realistic scream — the sort which will make you flinch even when you know it’s coming. (I’m surprised that Ripley, the resident hairless cat, wasn’t clinging to the ceiling.)

    Thanks again for coming out to see us here in the Bay Area. It was a wonderful reading and I’m glad I could attend. I’ll be waiting to see more of your work in print soon.

    I tried to take some pictures; there’s one available that I took (I think) while you were reading your first piece.

    Thanks so much for coming and thanks for bringing the tiara! You should know I will be practicing reading in a phone sex voice, for which the boyfriend will be in your debt 😉
