A is for Princess

You might remember Steven Saus from the “Year of Steves” blog earlier this year, or from my interview with him back in March about the story he had in the Timeshares anthology.I did all these things ’cause I just think Steve’s a cool guy. I certainly didn’t expect anything in return.

However, true to form in this beloved SF genre of ours, Steve sent me a few questions about my involvement in AlphaOops so that he could post it on his blog when AlphaOops: H is for Halloween was released. And so he did.

Here are his very lovely questions, and my very silly answers. Thanks, Steve!

I do want to add one thing…it’s not something I would have thought to put in the interview, because it didn’t occur to me until I saw the official post, and the picture of me that Steve used from when we met at Millennicon. I remember that dress I wore (also pictured here, doing the Time Warp with Scalzi). I remember it vividly because when I walked into the art show I was asked for the second time that day what my costume was. Completely unprepared for the question, I think I blushed, shrugged it off, and replied that it was just a pretty dress.

I should have told them I was Princess Alethea, Fairy Godmother Extraordinaire, of course. What do you mean you’ve never heard of her?

    Oh, you’re doing the Time Warp again. Whew! Just glancing at the picture I thought it was a good old southern hand clappin’ foot stompin’ glory liftin’ praise service. All that’s missing is the snake handlin’.

    I believe in the power of Scalzi.

    I don’t think I actually took the picture – that’s the thing. (I don’t know who did anymore.) I’m pretty sure that’s Jim in the side of the shot, and it was taken +/- an hour of me meeting you, but you were talking to Tim when I gave you directions that day, not Jim.

    Or I could be wrong. We should make them compare jackets.

    But you’re right – that dress is full of awesome.
