“This is my first Noircon. What attracted me is that I was asked to be the Guest of Honor, and no one could resist that.”— Otto Penzler, 2012
"Bitch-slapping the synapses of your brain," upon which another fellow attendee, knowing what I do for a living, asked, "Does bitch slapping take a hyphen?"
— Overheard at the hotel bar, 2010 (I should have replied: "Bitch-slapping takes a hyphen — and likes it." )
"Chubby Cambodian hotties."
— Christa Faust, 2008
Fellow Noircon attendee: "Are you a dog person or a cat person?"
Me: "Neither. I'm a vegetarian."
