Our severe lateness in putting up this recap post can be explained by the fact that the Quickies! AWP Spectacular blew our minds and we've just waken from the coma. Every. single. reader. was. amazing. To wit:
Mascot Toby Bengelsdorf, reading from the Quickies! Observer
Sean Lovelace (we stole this photo from Sean's blog. We were so flabbergasted by his story we forgot to take a picture. But here he is with Kim Chinquee!)
Robert Lopez (we didn't get a picture of him reading, but here's video of him reading. Uh, at a different event. Buy his book.)
Joe Salvatore (if I had a dime for how many people came up to me to say how much they loved this story, I'd have a shitload of dimes)
Brian Evenson. Yep.
Seriously. It's great to have our motor skills back, but it was all worth it to be able to witness and be a part of such a lineup. Thanks to all the readers, and thanks to the audience, who braved an extremely crowded sweat lodge in order to hear some great short fiction:
And last but not least, thanks to these guys:
See you in March (our year anniversary)!
