    Great news!

    You know, in a meeting at a previous job my employer told us never to use more than three exclamation points a year. This page shows some serious investment.

    !!! That’s fantastic news, Lois.

    Congratulations!

    When were the Sidewise Awards?

    I have been here at Worldcon, departing in the am, but due to my ear surgery last week have been disoriented in the sense of not remembering what is going on when.

    Thanks to everyone.

    The ceremony was Friday morning. Steve Silver called me with the news.

    I was also glad to see the MacLeod novel win.

    Thanks for the good wishes, everyone. The award makes a real nice capstone to my author career.

    But this is certainly my last award, as “Pericles” was my last story.
