Launch Pad workshop debrief

Just got back from a week in Wyoming at Mike Brotherton’s Launch Pad workshop, an intensive NASA-sponsored workshop for pro SF writers. It was a fantastic week, and not just because it allowed me to escape the tropical humidity that D.C. has been plunged into for what seems like eons. Awesome lectures, brilliant stargazing, and unforgettable people….and thanks to fellow scribe Jeremiah Tolbert you see the attached picture of all of us.
