Readercon 21 Booty

I meant to post this about a week ago, but things have been so hectic and hot around here, I'm only just now getting around to it:





A horse-crippler cactus (Echinocactus texensis), approximately twenty years old. A gift from Paul T. Riddell of Texas Triffid Ranch.



This huge stack of books, mostly from Small Beer Press, and mostly courtesy the generosity of Kelly Link.



And, finally, the cherished stone The Red Tree earned, marking its nomination for the Shirley Jackson Award.
