Noble Pen Meeting

April 29th, 2010
Happy Chef, 1906 Blairs Ferry Rd NE, Cedar Rapids

“Empire” had the better ending. Luke gets his hand cut off, finds out Vader is his father, uh, Han gets frozen, taken away by Boba Fett. It ends on such a down note. I mean, that’s what life is, a series of down endings. All “Jedi” had was a bunch of Muppets.
-Dante, Clerks

While Miss Tarabotti was a proper English young lady, aside from not having a soul and being half Italian, she did spend quite a bit more time than most other young ladies riding and walking and was therefore unexpectedly strong.
– Gail Carriger, Soulless


Nick is still looking for a good editor for his western. I am still looking for a TARDIS or at least a balloon.

Lena was asked by the Linn-newsletter to write a story about her trip. Her dog will be writing a rebuttal.


IO9 looks at the worst Science Fiction and Fantasy book covers. I particularly like Conquest of the Amazon.

Authors talk trash.
