Journals

While doing my somewhat tedious work hours this afternoon, dissecting the title page and cover intricacies of every issue in the entire run of a journal, I encountered an article which I have a strong suspicion was co-authored by hilly02! It was in Envoi, a couple years ago. Am I right?

Notes
1) This was easily the high point of my afternoon's work hours.
2) I really need to start working on obtaining a publication of my own.
3) (On a tangent) Guy Gavriel Kay reading tonight

Re: wow!!!
Neat! I'm very impressed. You had your name in big letters on the front cover of Envoi!

Now if only I could find all the other, older copies of the journal I could do the relevant numbering report for it. Maybe they're all at the bindery? There wasn't even an empty spot on the shelf where they should have been.

Re: wow!!!
well the thing about Envoi is that it runs about 2-3 years behind schedule.
For example, we actually submitted our article in fall of 2001 and it was for the Fall 2000 issue. I don't know if that's helpful or not.

I've had a lot of wine.

GGK?

GGK reading? Fantastic! Not a big fan of his Fionavar Tapestry series (seemed too derivative and simplistic first time I read it, need to go back to it) but I adored Tigana.

IIRC, he worked with Christopher Tolkien on the editing of the Silmarillion...

Re: GGK?
Yep, he went to the University of Toronto and still lives locally. He usually shows up at the local SF literary convention. His younger brother and family attended the reading. This is the third one of his I've gone to in the past few years. Ironically, I still haven't read any of his work, despite the fact they've been recommended to me since I was an undergrad. Still, I've enjoyed the readings! I'm glad other people have actually read his work though. Most of the audience seemed to have.

One of the poems he read was inspired by his year working in Oxford on the Silmarillion.
