Walter Jon Williams speaks his mind.

Actually, Walter, I'm not sure if I'd want to be caught on a CCTV camera abandoning a cooler full of anything in Times Square at this present moment. An extended 'holiday' on Cuba doesn't really appeal!I'm prepared to consider other, less risky, methods for raising your profile, though.
I will be in NYC about the time you are teaching Taos Toolbox. Unfortunately, I have new classes I will be teaching this summer and I can't teach them from jail (I checked). I do not think this is a subject I can joke around about. Perhaps if the economy gets worse, I will be able to afford to joke about it next year. (Free room and board with an occasional bit of torture may start sounding quite nice.)
Or, perhaps, someone could stick copies of the covers of your more recent works (particularly TINAG) up to various metal objects - signs, bridge supports and the like - using magnetic boxes with a couple of LEDs...Hey, it worked for Aqua Teen Hunger Force

@Zora: Well, I'm also in NYC and *I* found it funny. @ WJW: Y'know, if SALADIN AHMED did this, I'm sure it actually WOULD make the news. But, though I love you, I don't love you enough to get my citizenship stripped:http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/04/faisal-shahzad-arrest-lie_n_562834.html
We're different, Saladin.I've also gone through 9/11 up close and personal, and then the Massive Failure of the Levees, and now the BP Oil Blowout Catastrophe, and about now, jokes about catastrophes just aren't funny to me.I still love you too.Love, C.
I buy your books. What more can I do that doesn't involve ending up in jail?!
