Dinner With Aaron Allston

We took local author Aaron Allston, author of Sidhe Devil, out to dinner on August 27. Eleven of us gathered for a nice meal at Tien Hong. Since Aaron was formerly a member of our Reading Group and still reads a lot, we discussed books we’d read recently. It turned out that Aaron also liked The Club Dumas. Aaron talked about his experiences writing Star Wars novels, several of which had been on bestseller lists. He mentioned that despite his success, a reader had only recognized him in public once. He said that he started writing Sidhe Devil over three years ago, and that his editor at Baen was ArmadilloCon 23 Editor Guest Toni Weisskopf. We all had a nice evening, and we appreciated Aaron giving us the opportunity to visit with him.
