I was asked to the Library of Congress to give a lecture at their Scifi/Fantasy "What if" author series. I discussed the change in recent trends toward the gritty and dark, as opposed to the more traditional heroic based fantasy. It was a great deal of fun. I also was given a personal tour of the LoC - one of the crowning jewels in our nation's capital. A very fun day all the way around.

@Michael - perhaps - Robin also taped it - so maybe a YouTube Video.

@Jim - they called me up and asked me. They had seen an article where I was mentioned.

@Heather, Amber - Thanks!

@Elise - Yes - it is one of my favorite buildings - I also received a private tour by a member of the General Council's Office.
