Hugh Laurie & The Copper Bottom Band Wow “Kes”

Attended a wonderful blues/jazz concert tonight by Hugh Laurie & The Copper Bottom Band.

High point of an energetic evening was Gaby Moreno’s rendition of “The Weed Smoker’s Dream.” It’s rare that one is truly transported by the music, but for five minutes I felt I was sitting in a smoky 1920s club and being ensorcelled by the singer.

Sweet! I have just received contributor’s copies of the October-November 2013 double issue of Asimov’s Science Fiction, which contains my novelette “No Others Are Genuine.” On the stands and available in eformats almost immediately.  And in very good company, too, including my old pal Jack Dann, Paul Di Filipo, and the great Kristine Kathryn Rusch.
