Imaginarium 2021 #ThursdayDoors

So Per Bastet Publications represented at Imaginarium 2021. We didn’t miss last year, because the convention was held online. This year, it was online AND in person. Sara Marian did a couple of online panels, but T and I were strictly be there or be square.

This house was somewhere along the way.

Not a door, but I had to show you the view from our window.

Please tell me that’s candle wax.

This was our set-up, right inside the DOORS.

We didn’t publish all these books; a few of them were self-published by a friend who couldn’t be there, so we represented for her.

Now some doors.

I guess the hotel was short-staffed, because food was buffet only. You had to buy a meal ticket at the registration desk in order to get in, even if all you wanted was a cup of coffee. (No, T didn’t. She just planted her fancy dragon-head Vietnamese cane and defied them. She got in and had coffee.) We were amazed that she managed, because the door was guarded by a Babushka. Sara went to St. Petersburg (Russia, not Florida) one summer, and she said Babushkas guarded everything. Babushkas are old women, and she said they were grumpy and implacable.


And a light for Joey.

More next week.

Thursday doors is under the direction of Dan Antion, photographer extraordinaire and critter daddy. Visit his site, enjoy his wonderful photographs, follow his directions, and enter a world of doors.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about a suspicious stain in or just outside a room.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      Me, too! It wore us out after the long break, but it was also invigorating. 🙂

    I’m glad you were able to go in person.

    We didn’t have Thursday Doors last week, but I’ll add this link to next week’s post so it gets included in the next Recap.

    Pel says your red blurt is nothing more than primer under old paint, where someone tried to scrub off the grayish mold blurt but got tired of fighting it and went off to look for some Kilz Mold & Mildew primer. It’s going to be a bigger job than they thought; maybe bigger than the building owner budgeted for.
