So I'm in Beijing for the Another Planet Science Fiction Conference. A lot of my Western friends, like Allen Steele, Crystal Huff, and Derek Kunsken (among others) are here too, and new ones as well. Also Zhao Haihong, whom I esteem highly as a writer.
The conference is in full swing. More about it when I can.
And from the Image Book . . .
The image comes straight from an REI ad. No alternations needed.
