Last year’s RT from A to Z was a huge hit. And so…here’s the all new 2009 edition. Maybe it’s not as clever as last year’s ode to RT. Sorry, but I’m still decompressing from a week of panels, promo and Perkins. (And it no way, shape or form mentions all the terrific people I saw this year. I mentioned the whole "decompressing" thing, yes?) Enjoy! And I hope to see you next year at RT.
A is for authors, both the established and the rookie.
B is for Barry Eisler doing shots before a panel on nookie.
C is for Columbus - next year in Ohio!
D is for Dakota Cassidy, so raunchy, oh my-o!
E is for Ellora’s Cave and its jungle-themed dance.
