And Powell’s people thanked me with a nice letter and $10 worth of gift cards. Oh. My. Yes.
I’ve long liked the place. I love that the elevator nearest the science fiction section makes this great science fictional whooshing sound, and that there’s a Neil Gaiman sketch of Morpheus on a pillar, and that the Star Trek section has photos on the wall of Kirk and Khan with tongue-in-cheek word balloons, and that I met my fellow aspiring writers in the café during November 2002’s National Novel Writing Month. I’ve spent much time in this place. I even remember the first book I ever bought there: Loose Tails, the first "Bloom County" collection.
This is me geeking out. Live with it. :-)
