After waiting forever for the Portland, Oregon venue to open ticket sales, I snagged a pair the minute they were available. He so rarely does anything on the Left Coast that I didn't reckon I'd ever have the pleasure of seeing him at a live event. It's a mere 7.5 hour drive, and a beautiful one at that. :) Any other Kboarders going?

He's coming to Milwaukee this fall and I plan on going. I've drifted a bit from his more recent stuff, but the man is a legend and what writer wouldn't want to here him speak? His book "On Writing" should be required reading for any aspiring author.

That's my feeling, too, TT. His work has added a great deal of reading pleasure to my life over many decades. Even when he bobbles he's a natural storyteller, and I have great admiration for the way he went after the craft with such single-minded intention. (And, frankly, none of us is getting any younger--so this is sort of a bucket-list deal for me.)

If he ever gets up here to Halifax I'll grab a ticket as fast as I can.
