I flew to New Jersey for my nephew Sean's wedding, which was a lot of fun.
Then I went to New York City for a week, checking in with my editors, publishers, and agents, and some old dear friends as well. Did a pizza crawl, had myself a Cel-Ray and an egg cream and a pastrami sandwich (New York health food), and did a lot of business.
From there it was off across the ocean to Helsinki for worldcon. My third visit to Finland, which never disappoints. Helsinki is a beautiful city, and it was a terrific con. Sure, we lost the Hugo, but the Hugo Losers Party kicked ass.
After worldcon, we hopped a train for Russia. A few days in St. Petersberg -- my god, what a stunning city -- and then off to the woods for Assembly Con. Our Russian hosts were warm and wonderful.
All in all, a great trip, but an exhausting one. The trip home was grueling.
Let me catch my breath, and might be I'll have some more to say.
Right now, I need some green chile.
