John Joseph Adams Odyssey Workshop

So John Joseph Adams just announced that he'll be lecturing at Odyssey. Unless something else comes up, I'm planning to tag along with him, so if you go to Odyssey next year you'll get to meet/hang out with me for a day or two too. I attended Odyssey back in 2001, and to this day some of my best friends are people I met through the workshop. Here's our class photo. (I'm the guy with the long hair on the far right.)

While I was digging up that photo, I came across a few other old photos I thought I'd share. So here's me at my very first Worldcon with some of my Clarion buddies, Mike Canfield, Toby Buckell, and Tom Gerencer:

And of course, here's one of me receiving the Medal of Honor. Wow, seems only yesterday...
