Sly Foxes of Montreal


My friend Rob has sent me another snapshot from Anticipation in Montreal. This was taken during the Asimov's party in the SFWA Suite, which for some inexplicable reason was not situated on the party floor. The neighbors complained about the noise and the hotel people came and shut down the party, throwing everybody out of the room.

BUT I was hanging in the back room with the Big Kids, and we were old enough party hands to know to keep our mouths shut and our heads low. So when everyone else was cleared out, we still remained, listening to George Martin's scandalous stories from the old days.

Shown above: Connie Willis and George R. R. Martin demonstrating the kind of smarts that has kept them commercially viable through their long and storied careers.
