There was a nice variety in the crowd: young, old, male, female, all sorts of people. After the readings, there was a panel discussion and question and answer. It was interesting that a lot of the discussion centered on media and the future of media, not just writing. The authors were also available afterwards to chat and sign books, and they were very accommodating to everyone.
If you would like to hear the event, there is a podcast available. Check out the entry at craphound.com for the link.
The venue was really great as well. It was right around the corner from my office, but I had no idea it was there. It’s a small theatre, owned by Variety Children’s Charity. There is a monthly fantasy/horror/sci-fi film screening there sponsored by Borderlands Books. Check out their web site for the schedule.
If you ever get a chance to hear Cory speak, I would recommend it. If you are at all interested in Sci-Fi or electronic freedom issues, it’s worth your time.
