I've never entirely understood why people enjoy reading trip reports, but they obviously do. Sometimes I like writing them, so hey, why not?
The first trip report I wrote, not counting school assignments on "What I Did Last Summer," was a fourteen-page single-spaced letter to one of my sisters, back in 1971, describing a three-week tour of Europe; since then I've probably written a couple of dozen at one time or another. Most of them are long since lost and gone.
Generally, though, when I write a trip report these days, it's online somewhere -- my newsgroup on SFF Net, or my LiveJournal, or somewhere similar. It's pretty easy to save those and repost them here, so sometimes I do.
Many of these originated in my topic on the old Genie Science Fiction Round Table, which is long gone, but the trip reports survive. I actually have one or two more of those archived that I've never reposted...
Here's what I've posted so far:
That's all for now...
For those who somehow stumbled in here by accident -- hi! I'm Lawrence Watt-Evans. I'm the author of more than three dozen novels and over a hundred short stories, as well as innumerable articles, comic scripts, poems, and other miscellany. This is my personal website, the Misenchanted Page; the name is a reference to my bestselling novel The Misenchanted Sword.
