Anticipation-WorldCon 2009 so far

So, I’m currently in Montreal for WorldCon 2009. I haven’t been to an SF convention in quite a while, and never one this big before, so I’m having quite a blast.

I do have some pictures, but I don’t seem to have packed my camera cord, so they might have to wait until I’m home again unless I can ferret one out.

Highlights so far have been:

  • Meeting loads of SF Canada folks whom I previously have known only online. I am very privileged to be part of such a wonderful organization.
  • Attending an absolutely delightful panel with Joe and Gay Haldeman. He “interviewed” her about being married to a writer, and she “interviewed” him about being one. They were simply charming.
  • Attending more panels than I can pull out of my brain right now; I will post a list, though, of all I can remember later
  • Listening to top-notch readings by Nancy Kress, Walter Jon Williams, Mark A. Rayner, Susan Forest, and a live production of one of James Patrick Kelly’s radio plays

And the biggest thrill so far–tonight I had a chance to tell Nancy Kress how much I enjoy her work and what an inspiration she has been to me. She was very sweet and gracious and I think I managed not to come across as a crazed fangirl.

But. I got to talk to Nancy Kress!!! O. M. G.
