I'm going to Worldcon!

I just bought my membership to Worldcon, the 72nd Annual World Science Fiction Convention. I've always wanted to go to one of these because it's the big convention, with thousands of fans, writers, actors, and directors mingling. Since it's in London this year while I'll be in Oxford, it's going to be right in my back yard. I couldn't miss this opportunity!

I'm going to try to get on some panels on the strength of my archaeology and writing background, and of course I'll have a copy of Radio Hope tucked under my arm, The print edition will be out by the end of February.

Anyone else ever been to a Worldcon? Anyone planning on going this year?

That's very awesome, Sean! Wrong side of the Atlantic for me though.

I've not been but the fact that it's in London would be a huge draw!

I've never heard of this convention, but I'm glad you're going (since you've always wanted to go).

Good luck with that book.

Lucky you! Good luck with Radio Hope. Worldcon in London sounds like a great time.
