Notes From America, #2 (The Con Report)

Have kicked Nick Mamatas. Much rejoicing. Reputation continues to grow. Suggestion of statues and women. "You have slain the beast! Slain the beast!" someone cried. Given sash. Declined cash reward. Have not yet received photo shoot against pink horse in street like Christopher Barzak, however.

Have noticed disturbing trend to subvert all conversations to American food. I grow obsessed. Will start co-opt farm if here much longer.

Mate, you're already being assimmilated. No Australian ever thinks they can change everything. That's crazy American talk. Leave now!

Oh. My. God. It's already too late. Do not go near the other Australians!!! Maybe it's not too late for them.

I will miss you, Ben.

I didn't even see Mamatas! Diude, I was trying to find you before I left yesterday. Where were ya in the afternoon?!?

I picked up Black Sheep before I left.
