Lucius Shepard would not have been at a DragonCon, nor would Wolfe, nor Sterling, nor is there a banquet. (I, on the other hand, did go to at least one, maybe two--the Atlanta connection.) And the LS books began to appear in 1993, which means that they were most likely beginning to be drafted just about then or shortly after. Kudos again, Nick--and I feel pleased to have put a jigsaw piece in place! (With help from Blattid.) -alga --
