I was really hoping to make it to that one. I've got the book on my Amazon wishlist but I had my 6 year old daughter with me that day and didn't think she'd want to sit through a panel discussion.
The full write up is here on Wired:
Basically, Jill Thompson is very dryly funny, the others were great, I want Amanda Conner high-school Star Wars comic and it was so cool to see so many librarians in the audience.
Also, go buy the book.
A Jewish seamstress in a steampunked Victorian London hires a consulting detective to solve a magical murder mystery.
--The Curse of the Brimstone Contract by Corrina Lawson
I got the book today, although I haven't cracked it yet.
Life is like a roller coaster. It has its ups and downs, but if you sit back and relax you get a heck of a ride.
Hey Corrina, it's the Summers family in X-men and Buffy; not Sommers.
Sommers would be Jamie; from The Bionic Woman.
And you call yourself a geek!
