Back from Worldcon!

As regular readers of this blog know, this week I was at Loncon3, aka the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention. I made lots of friends and ended up on the Iron Throne! It's good to finally get the recognition I'm due.
It was a great five days of panels, parties, readings, and meeting fellow fans. I did a signing of Radio Hope and A Fine Likeness on the 16th (my 45th brirhday) and was on a panel on refugees in fiction. For more on the con, check out the Worldcon report I did for the Black Gate blog.

Thanks for Jerome Finn for the photo!

Interesting sword effect on that throne. Do they belong to the dead warriors. . .?

Will you share any more tidbits from the convention on your blog?

Off to read your report!

DG: It's the Iron Throne from Game of Thrones. I believe the swords are from all the previous rulers. Nobody keep the throne for long.

Thanks, Sean, I didn't know earlier today what throne that was. Then, one of our daughters showed me a photo of herself in that same throne. (or a facsimile)

She had been to a 'special showing' of Game of Thrones props, etc. at our local exhibition in Vancouver with costumes and much more.
Great way to satisfy the fans!

Looking for more from Sean McLachlan? He also hangs out on the Civil War Horror blog, where he focuses on Civil War and Wild West history.
