See You In Fargo

I am off tomorrow to Fargo, North Dakota for Valleycon. I hope to see some of you there. I gather there may be some BWBers on hand, Jim Ludwig of Dark Sword Miniatures will be turning up with some of his fabulous Ice & Fire range, and I'll be reading a chapter from A DANCE WITH DRAGONS. Plus there will be the usual drinking and carousing and fine dining, one hopes.

I will, alas, miss this weekend's football games, so don't expect any NFL posts on Sunday night or Monday morning. And please don't post yourself about the games. My faithful friend TiVo will be recording the games for me, and I want to watch them unspoiled when I return on Monday night.

After Fargo, I have two days at home, and then I'm off again on a much longer trip, to visit the set of the HBO pilot shoot, and do those signings in Belfast and Dublin. Oh, and it looks like a third event is in the works, for London. I will let you know the details when they are set.

After England, Morocco. That should be fun. Never been there, and though I am pretty well travelled for a kid from Bayonne, Marrakech sounds considerably more exotic than any place that I have ever been before.

Things will probably get pretty quiet here while I'm away. I don't travel with a laptop, so I expect I won't be posting much... though I may pop in once in a while from a hotel business center, when I stumble on one.

And yes, TiVo will be getting all those games for me as well. I expect to be immersing myself in a month of Jets and Giants games along about Thanksgiving.

Till then... take care, all. Hang loose, sundry.

It would be lovely if there was someone on the set who would blog about it a bit. Do you know of anyone who might do so?

Hope you have a great time here in Fargo. Looks like Sat. and Sun might turn out to be decent weather. I stick by my previous comments about dressing warm, though. Here in the north, winter is coming... ;)

Eat LOTS of Moroccan food. It is divine.

But be careful where you eat that food. The only time I went to Marakesh I got the runs something awful.

Wow. Bummer of timing on the trips. I mean How will Ireland and Morocco stack up to the splendor that is Fargo. Oh well, You'll just have to make the best of it I guess.

See you at Valley Con!

Marrakesh can be just about anything you want it to be - from full force, in your face encounter with North Africa, to sequestered luxury. If that England trip should stretch north to Scotland, I'll be sure to ply you with traveler's tales - or if you don't mind unsolicited advice, I'll send you some through this new-fangled email thing.

Were I on your schedule, I might consider going directly on to England from Fargo (via MSP or Chicago, or possibly via somewhere in Canada). Going home for just two days sounds exhausting! But no doubt you have reasons to do it this way.

Just don't re-read Tom Disch's "Casablanca" before going to Morocco.
