Eldon had the following to say about his first
appearance at Borderlands Books:
"Alan and Jude are wonderful people—I
knew that much already, having met them at conventions past. But this
was the first opportunity I'd had to visit their store in the heart
of San Francisco, and to meet the rest of their crew. Extremely
gracious hosts, as expected, and I wish to thank them again for
having me visit. Their store boasts a warm and welcoming atmosphere,
with everything from the latest releases to rare, vintage treasures.
Readers in the Bay Area who have yet to discover this terrific
independent should do themselves a favor and drop in.
Thanks also to Naomi
Novik and Del Rey Books for allowing me to crash their party and
share the spotlight. Anyone who hasn't yet come across Naomi's
Temeraire books (featuring dragon-based aerial combat during the
Napoleonic wars) should definitely check them out.
Aside from that, this
event gave me an excuse to visit the city's famous wharf for the
first time, and get a close-up look at Alcatraz (from the outside,
anyway). A quick trip, and one made without a camera, so I have no
photos to share. But I had a great time, and I'm pretty sure that
that's what anyone reading this would care about.
What? No? Very well, I'll try to do better next time."
