Aphelion Micro-Con 2018 in Akron

I almost didn't make it; failed to bring sufficient driving directions and got a little lost on the way, but did get there, and not too late. We met at a Mexican-themed bar/restaurant for a drink and a gift exchange. Sergio is hugely generous; he presented me with a couple of books, a bottle of unusual plum-flavored gin liqueur, and boxes of candies from about five countries.

I presented him and Michele with an award plaque they'd earned for a screenplay they collaborated on; they had asked me to attend the ceremony in their absence, since it was close to me. And I had pin-buttons for each of us as well. I also gave Sergio some art materials and tools that I thought he might like for his modeling work.

After that, we went to a different place for dinner, which was quite nice.

These meetings don't last long these days; after we finished dinner I had to take Michele to the bus terminal and drop Sergio off at his hotel. I miss the earlier cons where we could spend the whole evening together talking. Still, every Aphelion Con is a good one!

It's always great to hang out with fellow authors. Fun to talk about projects we're working on and international politics. I will definitely plan to stay longer next year.
Since the house is on fire - at least let us warm ourselves.

Thank you all for meeting me also this years, and thank you both very much for the gifts, appreciated indeed...eh,eh

I have some good time there, though the unbelievably summer temperatures of that week in Ohio, about 35 degrees C., made me think that global warming is becoming a serious problem...eh,eh :D

The dinner was splendid and the beers were very good, a very pleasing day, of course!!!

:D :D :D
