Genii, Day 2, part 1

I was sitting at a public table with a group of friends, talking about magic and kangaroos, when this enthusiastic gentleman stepped up and in a loud voice announced: “I really loved that column you wrote about the prostitutes in Berlin!”

The immediate silence was delicious.

Highlights from Genii

This week I am at the Genii convention in Orlando, Florida. I thought I would keep you posted with a few highlights. I don’t attend many conventions, but this one is kind of special.

Upon checking in at registration, I was greeted by Jean Solomon, who was once part owner of the magazine, as well as publisher, editor, and now proofreader. She’s been with them for over two decades. She treated me very warmly, said she was a big fan of my work, and informed me that mine was the only column that ever brought her to tears. What an incredible compliment, what an awesome way to start this week.
