I completely forgot that the 71st Annual World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon) is going to be piggybacking LoneStarCon 3 here in San Antonio at the end of August! That's the one where they give out the Hugos! Paul Cornell! Ellen Datlow! Joe R. Lansdale! Quite possibly Charlaine Harris, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Kij Johnson! Also possibly Steve Jackson and George R. R. Martin.
(I wonder if I can organize some sort of get-together for the area game bloggers?)
