Sad Times in the Land of Semenov
This was probably the second most depressing thing I read today. I'd mentioned the signing with Semenov the other day because I hoped a few folks would go. My fear was that no one would. Being slightly swamped, I knew I wouldn't be able to make it myself, but my hope was that fans would show up and make the guy feel welcome. No such luck.
Now, all we have is an account of someone who got to the store at 5:20pm. There may have been a small line of folks when the doors opened, and then traffic petered out quickly after. I don't know. What I do know is I feel like a jerk for not taking some time off from my work to go say hi to a guy who donated his time for fans and apparently had only a few show up.
