Okay, maybe not, but for a paltry sum you could have gotten it for your bookshelf at the Gender Bending Tiptree auction at Readercon 12. Goh's were Michael Moorcock and Suzy McKee Charnas, it was held in yet another new hotel, and we had a good time. Attendance was down a bit from last year's Harlan Ellision everyone's relief.
