That feels exactly right. Lucius Shepard would not have been at a DragonCon,
nor would Wolfe, nor Sterling, nor is there a banquet. (I, on the other
hand, did go to at least one, maybe two--the Atlanta connection.) And the LS
books began to appear in 1993, which means that they were most likely
beginning to be drafted just about then or shortly after. Kudos again,
Nick--and I feel pleased to have put a jigsaw piece in place! (With help
from Blattid.)
