"More than machinery, we need humanity."
Ahoy! I spent the weekend in the lovely state of New Jersey, nerding it up at Wicked Faire (where I picked up a pair of TARDIS-blue-colored book earrings!) with various parts of my beloved community.
Among them was a long-time friend who was also a library schoolmate. She’s an all-around fabulous person, a great performer, and a librarian blogger. You can read her at Libromancer’s Apprentice.
I also met Curt Herr. He is a professor of literature, and publishes critical editions of otherwise-out-of-print and terribly obscure Gothic and Victorian pulp novels. As a hopeless academic and a mad lover of old oddities, it was like finding out that one of your dream jobs actually exists.
