So, I'm now at Kalamazoo.
So far I've gotten their internet to accept my laptop (twice) --which I'll need, since some sessions at in-person, some virtual, and some mixed.
I've also Seen Someone I Know (in this case, Brad Eden)
and had my first poke into the Dealers' Room.
If shd surprise no one that I bought two books within the first ten minutes:
THE MYTHOPOEIC CODE OF TOLKIEN: A XIAN PLATONIC READING OF THE LEGENDARIUM by Jyrki Korpua
HOW TO MISUNDERSTAND TOLKIEN: THE CRITICS AND THE FANTASY MASTER by Bruno Bacelli.
Last of all, I looked at the program book some more and tested the hang-out and socialize virtual room being hosted by Luke Shelton (hi Luke).
Now for some lunch, or at least a cup of tea, and then this afternoon it's off for the afternoon CSL session.
