Local Authors to Appear on Conan

ALBEQUERQUE, N.M. - Diana Gabaldon, Stephen R. Donaldson, George R.R. Martin, and Robert Vardeman will be appearing on the Conan O'Brien's late night talk show Conan later this month.

The four New Mexico authors are promoting their new book, From Impossible to IMAX: Bringing Fantasy to the Big Screen in the Digital Age. This non-fiction anthology presents stories about bringing epic fantasy to the big screen, from authors who have done it, and authors who have tried and failed.

New scenes from the upcoming season of HBO's Game of Thrones will be aired during the show.

This took me by surprise!

Good one. I was expecting Jay to do something, but I'm glad someone picked up the slack.

The best I could come up with was to switch my friends computer screen upside down (Alt Gr + directional arrow key) while he was on a break. Twisted Evil

*The internet at work run on Explorer. I use Firefox at home and AltGr+Da has no effect on my screen here Wink

That's possibly based on your operating system. They removed it in some versions of Windows.

What purpose did it serve?

My imagination tells me it was needed for fixed com display screens in orbit, like the ISS!

Amazing! Your oldest was just surrounded with people who talked as though it was true, so...

I showed this to my kids, who, now, predictably want to tell about their April Fool's fooling-attempts.

The older one wanted to think of something plausible-sounding.
So he tried to convince his dad that the couple who watched them last night had cooked scrambled eggs and tender cactus. (both of which we had on hand)

The younger one tried to convince us that the elderly lady who was here had played a game we have on our computer called "Desktop Dungeouns."
With less apparent success....

Wait, what? Okay, I guess that's an acceptable excuse.

Also - congrats!

Congratulations, Jay.

(Menolly, that would put the prank as having been last June sometime.)

Kevin's Watch: The Next Generation

That's one way to increase membership. Maybe SRD could come out with some picture books for the younger crowd. (Hey, Terry Pratchett did it. Where's My Ur-Vile? On the other hand, maybe not such a good idea.)

MsMary and I have already done our parts -- separately, of course -- and so did Furls. Y'all need to catch up. Wink

Congrats, Jay and Mrs. Jay! Very Happy
