Welcome to 2017's first installment of EATING AUTHORS. This week's guest is Alexander Jablokov, and his account of his most memorable meal is one you donut want to miss.

(See what I did there? No? Then click the link and it will make more sense)

Yesterday kind of got away from me, and I neglected to post this link. Which is a shame, because this week's EATING AUTHORS guest is William C. Dietz, and he's not only a fine writer, he's got a great story for his most memorable meal.

So, a day late, but NOT a dollar short. Click the link; it's all good.

Well then. Shrimp for dinner it is -- sans a beach.

A glorious weekend at Philcon and now we're all taking a break from politics for a few days to remember that really we do have quite a bit to be thankful for.

Among other things, I'm thankful for segues like this that allow me to introduce this week's EATING AUTHORS guest, Renee Carter Hall. She's waiting there at the link below to tell you all about her most memorable meal. And no, it's is not a Thanksgiving story.

It's Monday. More specifically, it's THAT Monday, the Monday before the Tuesday that will (we can only hope) end the seemingly endless ranting that has polarized so many Americans into US and THEM.

I know, I know, you can all use a break, a distraction, from the last frantic 24 hours of political bloviation that assaults you wherever you go. So allow me to point you to this week's EATING AUTHORS guest, Rick Wilber, a balm to your senses this fine day. A brief respite that we all need. Tomorrow will be here soon enough.

Also, please vote.

Despite my best efforts over the weekend, Monday has again dawned. Nor does it seem likely that it will be the last one of the month. Sorry about that.

By way of making it up to you, allow me to introduce Edward M. Lerner, this week's guest at EATING AUTHORS, who has come all this way to tell you about his most memorable meal.

Seriously? It's nine degrees here today. Again. Again!

I confess, my initial instinct is to crawl back under the covers when I see that temperature. But no, I can't deprive you of your weekly dose of EATING AUTHORS. And so, to warm you up, here's a link to Becky Chambers talking about her most memorable meal. Appropriately, it takes place in Iceland.

The last Monday of the year, and if you have the day and off and need something to fill your time, here's a link to this week's EATING AUTHORS guest. Click it and read Teresa Frohock's account of her most memorable meal.

Of course, you're free to click the link even if you don't have the day or or don't otherwise need to fill your time. :)

As the saying goes, I never did get the hang of Mondays. This particular Monday has been chock full of DayJob meetings, phone meetings, email correspondence, novel writing, errands, and movers tromping through the house as we go through some minor remodeling and hide everything we don't want to look at in the cavernous hole that is the basement.

Meanwhile, Monday also means a fresh segment at EATING AUTHORS, and so it's my great pleasure to introduce you to Travis Heermann, this week's guest. The link below will take you on the wild ride that is his most memorable meal.

I'm away in southern California at the moment, but that doesn't affect your need to learn about authors and what they eat. Which is why below you'll find a link to Judith Tarr's account of her most memorable meal.

Don't delay. Click it right now!

Possibly the only thing everyone can agree on from the past week is how stressful it's been. I can't make any of that go away with a simple post, but I can distract you for a few minutes.

This week's EATING AUTHORS guest is Mishell Baker, and she has what may well be the most unusual meal of the hundreds that have appeared on this blog. But don't take my word for it, check it out yourself.

Also, please remember, be excellent to one another.

Despite the airport's best efforts to keep me in Columbus, I am returned from the glory that was the 2016 World Fantasy Convention. I had a great time there, and if you didn't get to go, well, I feel sad on your behalf.

But you can find a modicum of joy and comfort today by meeting this week's EATING AUTHORS guest, Sharon Joss, and reading of her most memorable meal.

Story
Tagline
author / publisher / psychologist / hypnotist / klingonist
Introduction
I have a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology, and  spent ten years as a college professor. I currently work as the director of research and analytics for a series of mental health and addiction treatment facilities. Additionally, I'm a certified hypnotherapist, using my powers of mind control to help other authors.

I'm also the founder and director of the Klingon Language Institute, which has been a very wild ride. More recently, I began a speculative fiction small press, Paper Golem, aimed at serving the niche of up-and-coming new writers as well as providing a market for novellas.

In 2007, I was nominated for the John W. Campbell Award for best new writer; in 2010 I received a Hugo nomination for best short story; in 2013 I garnered a Nebula nomination for best novella. In fiction I'm probably most known for the series of stories, novelettes, and novels about the Amazing Conroy and his buffalo dog companion, Reggie.

I live near Philadelphia with my wife, Valerie, who is neither a psychologist nor a Klingon speaker.
