Just got back from the 64th Annual World Science Fiction Convention last night and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m desperately trying to catch up on all the e-mail that came over the past week, so this will be a short post.
In summary, my first Worldcon has won me over to Worldcons. Next yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s is in Yokohama, Japan, so I wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be able to make it. But, Denver was voted as the site for 2008 and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve never been to Denver ….
Anyway, I had a blast and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll share with you some of what I learned and did and saw over the next couple of weeks.
For those of you who weren’t able to make it Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Harlan Ellison announced that this would be his last convention. The audience let out a disappointed “Ahhhh.”
Alas, I won’t have any party stories to tell, though. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m painfully shy and came alone. So, I didn’t have the courage (nor the energy since my body kept waking me up at 8am ET!) to check them out. I heard the Masquerade was a blast.
Anyway, that’s it for now.
Oh! If you have any questions about Worldcon, post them in the comments and I’ll try to answer them, if I can. Also, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll have photos within a week, and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll share those, too.
