We’re shortly off to Loncon 3. A lot of my heroes will be there, but hopefully I can avoid any embarrassing fanboy moments like at World Fantasy Con last year:
Charlie: Martin. Look behind you…. Hello Joe.
Me: What..? (leaps to feet) HOLY SHIT! Joe Haldeman!!!
Mostly I’m hoping to get the lie of the land, enjoy a rare chance to share geek space with my wife and muse, and meet a few friends from my livejournal days, including Joshua Palmatier who once wrote an amazing Fantasy novel I’d describe as Honor Harrington does Sim City.
We’ll also be attending a friend’s 50th birthday party while there — a bit scary how time flies.
Watch this space.
