We had a wonderful time at his place. He's 74 years old, jogs two miles every day, lives on a tree farm and -- it's kind of freaky, but he looks a bit like me, but older. Beard, pony tail ... he's a vegetarian too -- I think we bonded instantly. He has a huge office, bigger than some sf writers HOUSES that I've seen, and it sits atop a two room library. I did a 360' panorama while he told great stories.
Oh, and he does archery every day to keep his arm strength up. He complains about his aim, but when I got to his house, I saw that he's shooting at targets 80 yards away. I don't think I could hit a Coup DeVille from that far back.
I really should be doing my taxes right now, but Trillian's at rehearsal so I can't shout "DARLING! PIERS ANTHONY JUST BLOGGED ABOUT ME!" (well, I could shout it, but it wouldn't do any good, it would just annoy the cats).
