Gini Koch just posted an interview that she did with me over on her site. It includes a free Spacetrawler book#1 giveaway. Go give it a read!
So, yeah, my good friend Gini Koch invited me to join her and a group of Romance Novelists at the “Arizona Dreamin’” booth, and of course I said, “yes!” Duh. And so, it looks like a great festival and I adore Tucson. What more could one ask for?
So yes, find me here:
Arizona Dreamin’ Romance Books
Booth number: #125-126, 131-132
This weekend, 9:00-5:00 March 9-10 at University of Arizona, Tucson.
He’s finally found a kindred spirit.
“…not to mention the gang of psychopathic eebs intent on eventually killing you…”
“Um, please, don’t mention it…”
There’s a saying that crops up occasionally over at “Schlock Mercenary” that seems ready-made for this moment: “Not my circus; not my monkeys.”
I also thought of “omnicide” – about 3 days too late. And immediately came up against Fred Saberhagen’s Berzerkers (long before any Terminators!) Or The Doctor’s nemesis Daleks.
The bar scene may be more for those who want ‘a bit of the other’, rather than a couples bar; you go there for ‘some strange’, and like that joint on Tattooine, there’s certainly some strange to be found!
I remember then saying that the native people had bad fashion taste, and that’s why they weren’t classified as people. Man! Great continuity. I do have to say, I love that rainbow color. Goes well with the purple skin.
And now Dusty’s consciousness is opened up by the fact that Tornites aren’t classified as sentient beings any more than Eebs are because, well, see https://www.baldwinpage.com/spacetrawler/2013/01/22/spacetrawler-294/
(I think Dimitri changed that a while back, but after all, things like that take time.)
I’d forgotten that the excuse given for Tornites being considered non-sentient is that they’re horrible dressers. And here I was thinking how *cool* the Tornite’s outfit looks…
I like the double chin, cheeks, and forehead. Guy or gal? We’ll find out…
I’m in Torniport without Hilda…
With fashion sense like that…. No wonder they’re not sentient. 🙂
Now, now, … I don’t see anything in that outfit that a western string bow tie won’t fix.
Actually Dustin, in his own vapid way, is partially right. His monumental stupidity is responsible for a lot of that blood, but personally, his own hands are mostly free of it.
You know, sort of like a politician.
@Corpore Metal, I wish you hadn’t mentioned “Dustin” with “politician”. Now all I can think of is a T-shirt I saw that said
“Vote Tyrion Lannister in 2012!
‘A Lannister Always Pays His Debts'”
Now all I can think of his how Dustin would be as a vice-president…
Yay! Tornites! And they dress just as horribly as we remember!
Though I must admit I feel sorry for the bar bot. Being brandished like that can’t be very pleasant
Wait, hasn’t Dmitri cleared all of their names with the G.O.B. by now?
Nevermind, I just realized he probably kept Dustin’s name on the list as a prank.
