Here it is, the photo that all America has been screaming for! Pictured above is Gardner Dozois, as he was when he first arrived in this country, a starving refugee from the great Dutch tulip blight. Look deeply into those sad, sad eyes and you'll see the smallest glimmer of hope . . . hope that someday he might breathe free . . . hope that sometime in his lifetime he'll be able to eat a full meal . . . hope that the science fiction in his adopted homeland might not entirely suck.
Aww, God bless America! I wipe a tear from me eye.
And as usual . . .
I'm on the road again! I make no promises . . . Saturday, Balticon has placed me on a total of eight items in thirteen hours . . . and the last time this happened, at Lunacon, it all but broke me . . . But I'll do my best to post a photo of my breakfast on Facebook.
Because the world demands it.
