One thing I've noticed about the International Conference for the Arts (a.k.a. ICFA): Jacob likes - and especially likes working with - insanely smart people. Tachyon authors and editors at ICFA included Brian Aldiss, Michael Arnzen, Kathryn Cramer, David Hartwell, James Patrick Kelly, John Kessel, Ellen Klages, James Morrow, David Sandner, and Sheila Williams. Jacob and Bernie were also spotted hanging out with Ted Chiang, F. Brett Cox, Ellen Datlow, Andy Duncan, Peter Straub, Liza Groen Trombi, Mary Truzillo, Charles Vess, and next month's SF in SF guests, David Lunde and Patricip McKillip. Don't try and calculate a group IQ - too many zeros (and not the leading kind).

Speaking of zeros, Jacob also got to hand deliver the wonderfully talented editing duo of Jim Kelly and John Kessel their very large royalty check for their first successful Tachyon anthology, Feeling Very Strange: The Slipstream Anthology. (I mean the zeros in the check, of course.)

Need I say that a good time was had by all?
