At the invitation of professor and author Kij Johnson we went to visit the University of Kansas, with its vast holdings of SF and SFnal history. The actual collection is going to have to be a separate post — there was just too much cool stuff! But the campus and town deserve their own post.
College towns are the -best- for bookstores. And yarn stores! (It helps you stay awake in lectures, if you knit.) And there is wildlife that you don’t see on the East Coast. This hawk is not actually headless. He’s just tucked in against the stiff winter wind.
