I’d written off doing WorldCon, for various reasons related to professional decisions — us new writer folk still gotta try to get the most bang for our convention bucks — but I’ve been talked into going by my (soon to be announced) collaborator. A venerable name in science fiction, and a man I absolutely trust to know what he is talking about. So, I shall be appearing at both World Science Fiction Convention and World Fantasy Convention. Money? Time off from work? Trivialities! I shall live on Top Ramen and bunk at the Motel 6! I can float the trips on my Diner’s Club card! Insanity! (smirk) Seriously, this is a 180-degree decision for me, but it feels like the right thing to do. WorldCon won’t ever be this close to Utah again — not for many years. And I’ve got too many good reasons to go.
