I’m heading off today to take part in the World Science Fiction Convention, aka WorldCon, aka Chicon 7. Sofawolf Press will have a table there, largely because they can drive to it and because Ursula Vernon’s Digger is nominated for a Hugo award this year! Which is all kinds of awesome.
I will also be on four panels, two about furries (9 am Friday and Saturday) and two not (“Fandom’s Blind Spots,” Sunday; “Getting the Most Out of Writing Groups,” Monday). The furry ones will be interesting–given the time and the number of competing panels, I suspect there may be more people on the panel than in the audience, but we shall see. If we’re going to tell people that furries are worth their time, we’ve gotta start somewhere, right?
I’m looking forward to meeting a bunch of the people who will be up at Gaylaxicon in a month and a half, and meeting more of the SF crowd, especially some of the Outer Alliance folks I’ve come to know in the last couple years. Should be a lot of fun! I will report for y’all upon my return. In the meantime, have a great Labor Day weekend!
