Mike Resnick's Banana

Originally, I was going to explain how I became the first person ever to have a story win the Locus Poll in two separate lengths today.  But I'm having trouble transferring the photo from the camera, so that will have to be put off until Monday.

In the meantime, here's a picture of Mike Resnick's banana, snapped at his Tachyon Publications signing.  You'll note that it's autographed by no less a personage than  Connie Willis -- "the female person from Colorado!" -- herself.  Which is not only emblematic of the silliness that goes on at a Worldcon, but an incredibly valuable, one-of-a-kind collectable in its own right.

A bit of a challenge to conserve, though.

And as always . . .

I've updated the sister blogs.  In Pastor Marcia's Journal, Marcia inadvertently goes to see the elephant.  And in Poem du Jour, a poem from the Great White Whale of Twentieth Century American literature himself.  I bet you didn't even know he versified!
