No book prize this time

 The huge AAS-ICAS conference in Honolulu is over and the city’s balmy warmth just a fading memory. This was not a year that NIAS Press walked off with one of the book prizes but our old colleague Stein Tønnesson did win the ICAS prize (and we are talking with him seriously about his next project. Time will tell).

Otherwise, it was a busy and successful week in Honolulu with many sessions to sit in on and my own presentation (on coping with rejection) delivered to a gratifyingly large audience. More important perhaps were the potential new authors to court and old authors to catch up with. In total maybe two hours of author interviews were filmed. Expect to see these online in the near future.

Then of course there was a reception, a joint “Hawai‘i” affair involving all the publishers like NIAS exhibiting at the conference and distributed in the Americas by our friends at the University of Hawai‘i Press. Books were shoved aside and an enormous sticky, rich chocolate cake plonked on our stand.

It took forever to eat, thankfully not by me.

    The Jade Bracelet

    That year winter in Hong Kong was longer than usual. I had to wear several layers of warm clothing. There was no heater in the apartment where I worked, perhaps because my employer wanted to save on the electricity. The weather should have been warmer, now that Chinese New Year was approaching.
