Night of the Living Todd

Great time at the Thuglit 3 launch party last night. For anyone who's ever been in Thuglit, that crew needs a focused bolt of collective karma sent their way...Todd especially. Great to meet some people finally after all this time online. Porter, Davidson, Gray...everyone handled themselves on stage with professionalism and skill. Gloomy rain chased a few writers and guests away, but even that seemed apropos given the dark fiction read.
