A nice crowd, lots of friends, a couple new faces too, though. My favourite piece of Ben's was the Argosy, a retelling of the Odyssey through the eye of Odysseus' dog. Lisa absolutely knocked my socks off. All the praise she's getting for her collection is well-deserved.
I read a selection of Weekly doses after an excerpt of what will hopefully be something book length. Not much happens in it, but afterwards, Amanda Earl came up to me and said "All that detail! I loved it!" and that felt very good to hear.
