>intimate/ephemeral conversations of the before times.

> Pat and I figured out, in discussing it later, that the sequence of events was that I took the Spanish history course in the summer
>or fall of '97, the abortive letter game was in the summer of '98, and the novel got its start (in the shower, one of the few inceptions
>I remember clearly) in February of 1999, two months after I'd turned in the manuscript of A Civil Campaign and was scratching
>around for something different to write.

> If you have never attended an SF con, this is a fair sample of what the panel discussions are like.
