Orbita Dicta

My vague or otherwise twisted recollections of interesting (to me, anyway) things said by writers, editors, fans, and other hangers-on at science fiction conventions.

My attributions/clarifications/snide comments appear before each quotation in brackets.

Disclaimer: How accurate are these citations?
To quote that useful Italian scholar, Ben Trovato: "A great quotation should be characteristic or appropriate. Sometimes even true."
