There are some BIG names going to WorldCon, including (but not limited to) George R. R. Martine, Dean Wesley Smith, Patrick Rothfuss, and Lou Anders. I’m staring at the Renovation update right now, and I’ve just realized this isn’t going to be like the state-side conventions I attend. I feel very, very small.
And very, very stupid, since I don’t recognize half of the names on the list. When I get my hard-copy, I’m taking a highlighter to the names of people I want to meet or talk to. I’m buying some GRRM books so I can have him sign them.
Wow. There are going to be some amazing panels at this thing. After WorldCon, I’ll never view LTUE and CONduit the same way again…
Also, a plug-in for my friend Nathan, who has published his first indie book, Paradise Seekers. Go check it out!
