This batch of photos plucked randomly from the bottomless box seems to be from 1998-2001. Following is just a sampling from several Nebula events, a World Fantasy Con, a Worldcon, and a Readercon.

Nebula Awards Weekend in New York, April 2000
Photos taken upstairs at a Barnes & Noble during the mass author reading
Octavia Butler (1947-2006) Terry McGarry, David Hartwell, Mark Rich
(I don’t know if Terry remembers, but we took several heavy boxes of the special Nebula issue of the SFWA Bulletin in a cab to the B&N, then lugged them up many stairs to I think the third floor for distribution during the author reading. It was hot up there, but I remember everyone having a great time.)

I ran into these three co-conspirators in the hotel hallway before the awards dinner and couldn’t resist taking this photo, primarily because we all shared the same first name. From left to right: David Brin, David Gerrold, and David Hartwell. Photo by David Truesdale.
