CLEARLY only the 11.78 people with the most
taste, what the! I've met the .78 person, and he's really rather nice for missing nearly a quarter of himself...

Who are the 11.78 people* that want to see nude phots of Brockman and Alf? On second thought, I'd rather not know. *62 X 18% = 11.78.

Taking a pee that you've been holding for a long time is the best thing in the world. I've had four kidney transplants 'cuz I like it so much. And reading Dorothy Dunnett is a very close second, especially with a nice pot of Peets Pride of the Port tea. C'mon, where's that check already?!

Best thing - Being able to get signed copies sent from Powell's to the armpit of the US where most author's dare not travel. Decolletage pales in comparison. I guess having said cleavage makes me a little biased.

Oops, that's Baen books, of course.

Somewhat off topic, but Raen books has had a number of it's Sci-Fi titles available for free download or online access for many years thanks to Eric Flint & co. Oh yeah, best thing(s): A plate of steamer clams with drawn butter and a plunging neckline across the table.
