Coming home on the train from a visit to Connecticut this week i found myself seated in the dining car next to a young woman reading Paul Cornell's London Falling, a book that's on my buy-and-read shortlist. We started talking about Worldcon and fandom and Doctor Who and Wiscon, which she normally attends and I've been thinking about going to. Then, yesterday morning on arriving at Chicago I bumped into Jo Walton, author of Among Others. Wish I'd known she also had a roomette in my sleeper car, I would have bought her a drink in the lounge car since she's always seemed like an amiable person. Turns out Jo is on her way to Wiscon where she's a GoH. Small world indeed.
