Home again

There’s much to say about the Melbourne weekend, but the main thing is that we’re all home, safe and recovering from jetlag, con crud and so on, and hopefully will be returned to full functionality soon.  After her sojourn in Royal Melbourne Hospital, mum has made a full and complete recovery. We don’t know what happened, but she was given a clean bill of health and seems fine.

I especially want to say something about the Hugos, but not right now. For the moment, it was an honor and a delight to be nominated, a surprising joy to have come so close to winning, and I take my hat off to the winner (congrats Ellen!).  The fan community has been exceptionally kind and supportive to me, and I can only be grateful and happy.
