Same feeling here in Colorado. Yay for finally going blue! (Plus we finally got rid of that *^$%%*^$ Musgrave.)

Re: don't blame me, i didn't vote for him
Please don't insult your intelligence with this "Marxist" label you're assigning to Obama. It's like calling George W. Bush a Neo-Nazi. I don't agree with the Republican platform, but I trust that they really do have the best interest of the country at heart. I have a great deal of respect for John McCain. We would have been in a lot better shape as a nation had he been in command for the past eight years. It's time to move forward as one nation, and put the juvenile labels and stupid name calling behind us.

seriously
OK, no schtick or sarcasm here. I am a republican and a conservative and I voted for McCain. I won't try to defend the bumbling of the past 8 years either. But, all of you who are quoting the first lady elect that you are proud to be an American for the first time....give me a break. John McCain's deeds should make you proud, along with the countless others who have put themselves in harms way so that we could have the right to vote and choose the candidate we want and argue about it on the internet like this.

Indiana for Obama!
Yes!! It was amazing. I can't believe America elected her first black president - in my lifetime.

And Indiana turned blue! That, if anything, was even sweeter.

Happy happy days!
Did you cry like a wee girl? I did. My husband did. My daughter did... but probably because she IS a wee girl, and was one up way past her bedtime at that. I can't believe that this time having the audacity to hope was rewarded with joy, life, a golden crown for our nation. I'm so thankful I had a chance to vote, to volunteer, to help make history. Wow.

And thank you, GRRM, for being so awesome, someone Ii can respect and like in this world when I'm not being enchanted by the worlds you create.

Change
Hey George, Johnny here from the hills. I voted for Nader but anyhoo.

Now that we elected someone who might listen, the real work of making noise starts.


I don't have faith in Obama changing, but with Obama there is a possibility that a powerful social movement might change him. With McCain, no chance.

Activist movements, if at all serious, pay virtually no attention to which faction of the business party is in office, but continue with their daily work, from which elections are a diversion -- which we cannot ignore, any more than we can ignore the sun rising; they exist.

Bah...
Nothing will change. Obama and McCain both voted for the 700 Billion bail out, they both want more troops in the middle east, and both want to spend, spend, spend!

Those of you who had the balls and voted third party, congratulations!

Re: Bah...
I don't really think it takes balls to throw away your vote on a third party candidate with no chance of even getting 2% of the popular vote unless you have the balls to announce you're really a Socialist or Communist.

Exactly.
That pretty much sums up my feelings about the outcome of the election. From 10pm till 12am my eyes were not dry. I have so much hope in my heart for the future of this great country I call home. I respect John McCain, but I think we need a leader like Obama who will inspire us to be the change we want to see in the world. He's already done it once by getting young and minority voters to care about the election and get out and vote. I am confident that he will do it again and again. I live in Mississippi, so today I heard a lot of negativity that upset me. I wish people would stop doubting him and give him half a chance to prove himself a worthy leader.He hasn't even taken office yet and a lot of people in my "great" state have already doomed his presidency. I gave Bush a chance. They should give Obama a chance.

    Still working on that. When we have a final, I will share it.

    All the Wild Cards books under Tor have had absolutely stellar covers. I'd frame them and hang them on my wall if I could.

    Are all these examples digital artwork? It doesn't look like traditional oil on canvas. I miss the fantasy/sci-fi covers of the '70s and '80s. Even the paperbacks had amazing covers.

    Whatever anyone can get their hands on is, I suspect, the right answer.

    At the last party, it was an open bar with pretty much everything you can imagine on offer. There were some special drinks as…

    Any chance you could tell us who’s doing the cover art for Fire and Blood? And maybe when we can expect a glimpse of it. Thank you!
