Okay, it’s not precisely my dear and native land, but it’s still a cool country…and I’ll be heading off shortly to visit it, as I’m on several panels (and doing a reading) at Worldcon, the longest running science fiction / fantasy convention in the world, being held this year in Montreal. (Details can be found here.) Driving is actually cheaper than flying, so I’m making the trek by car; I should arrive Friday evening, and hopefully will be awake enough to grab a couple of late night panels before getting ready for the festivities on Saturday and Sunday. If you’re in the area, please stop by and say hello! I’ll try to post a report about the convention soon after my return.
