So, I'm off, having safely arrived in Michigan and gotten registered and all for the Medieval Congress. Tomorrow I deliver my piece on Tolkien's THE FALL OF ARTHUR and attend a bunch of other presentations that I'm really looking forward to. I've already run into a good assortment of Tolk Folk, had some interesting conversation, and learned a lot. Looks like it's going to be a great weekend.
