Default Lady Maelin's WorldCon photos [split]



Anne was being filmed and interviewed by parts of the WOrld Con staff.



A young fan was lifted up to have a visit with Anne, and to get a candy handed personally to him.



Anne at her talk "What it is like to be Anne McCaffrey", a very interesting talk.



This just goes to prove that authors have fans too. This is David Gerold the author, coming to say hello to Anne....Friends and Fans both!!!



Anne on a panel "Writers and Illustrators of the Future", with Jerry Pournelle, Jay Lake, Tim Powers, John Goodwin, Anne, and Laura Freas(The late Kelley Freas wife who is also an artist). This was a very interesting, and entertaining panel to listen to.



This was after a panel that Todd was on about "Collaboration: The Care and Feeding of Your Partner", where he talked about writing with his mother. This was a lovely talk to listen to, about Anne and Todd's, writing together from Todd's point of view.

I hope that you enjoy the pictures, it was a wonderful convention to attend. There were so many things to see and do there, that there was not enough time to do it all. The dealer room, was also a fabulous place to hunt for a treasure to take home with you, and many of us did just that, with very large smiling faces.

This is Dena, me, and Cheryl meeting up at the L.A. World Con. 2006. This was wonderfull finally meeting up with some of the other MoM members.



This is me and Sharon before she made her "Gift of love" donation of her lovely long red hair. She looked marvelous in her costume, as did they all.



This is Cheryl again, with me and my Martin...as you can see by Cheryl and my t-shirts we were dressed as Anne fans. The one I have on in this picture is one of the ones we gifted to Anne( in San Diego) with the portrait of her on the front, and all the member portraits on the back. This shirt was a huge favorite, with a lot of fans and Anne. The other t-shirt that we gifted to Anne, was one with the "Dragonsigner" drawing on the front, and the "McCaffrey Quest" sign on the back of it( as seen in Anne photo when she is on stage in the other group of photos that I put up earlier. I once again hope that you all enjoy these, it was so wonderful to meet some of the other fans of Anne, finally!!!

The pics are fantastic, Maelin! Very nice pics of Anne and the fans -- did you have to post Todd's so HUGE?

Wonderful to be able to see these. Thank you so much!

And, martin, that is a fabulous Star Trek shirt!

I'll work on shrinking some of the oversized ones later tonight. And I think I will also split Maelin's pictures off to a new thread, making them easier for everyone to find.

It was so great seeing everyone at World Con. I loved seeing the photos too since my camera was with Rod and our boys.

Sorry Cheryl and Hans, about the size of some of these, I put them on Photobucket, and never know what size they are going to be by the time I get them here.

Becky, I wish that more of the members could have gone to the convention too, that would have only added to the pleasures that we all had there.
