me in the piazza

I'm a writer, publishing both as SJ Rozan and, with Carlos Dews, as Sam Cabot. (I'm Sam, he's Cabot.) Here you can find links to my almost-daily blog posts, including the Saturday haiku I've been doing for years. BUT the blog itself has moved to my website. If you go on over there you can subscribe and you'll never miss a post. (Miss a post! A scary thought!) Also, I'll be teaching a writing workshop in Italy this summer -- come join us!

More Singapore

Wanted to fill you in on the rest of the Singapore trip before I started the Shanghai report. Yes, I know I'm behind. Trying my best for you guys, really I am.

The conference I was in Singapore to attend was in honor of Shirin Fozdar, an early Singaporean feminist. I gave the closing plenary, and enough people have asked about my talk that I think I'll put it up on the blog in a couple of days. Meanwhile, here are about a third of the speakers, gathering for dinner.

I also got to hang around in Singapore, courtesy of various friends. You already saw some of those photos; if you missed the earlier blog entries they're not hard to find, and if you click on any of these photos you can see the rest. I spent a day with my friend Roberto Cartelli, a great guy, and his friend Ann Hill, my new buddy. We went to the Barrage, to Marina Bay, to the Gardens, and for a long walk, lunch (more laksa!) and a boat ride. We looked like this:

As photogenic as we clearly are, Singapore has even more photogenic objects.

They also want to make sure that you understand where it is they don't want you to go.
