Yesterday was the Second Annual Science Fiction Ladies Lunch at my apartment in Seattle. Everyone had a lovely time (at least, I did, and they said they did). We exchanged industry information, gossip, and updates on what everyone is doing. From left to right around the table (although not everyone, alas, is equally visible -- I'm not a very good photographer): Eileen Gunn, Leslie Howle, Elizabeth Bourne, Janet Freeman-Daily, Brenda Cooper, Vonda McIntyre, Louise Marley, Nisi Shawl, Kelley Eskridge, Nicola Griffith. Out of town: Timmi DuChamp and Cat Rambo.
