Where in the World Will John Scalzi Be?
Because I know how much my stalkers hate having to guess where I’ll be, here are my current convention plans for the first part of 2007.
January 19-21: Moonbase ConFusion, in Troy, Michigan
February 16-18: Boskone, in Boston, Massachusetts
April 20-22: Penguicon, in Troy, Michigan (what did Troy do to deserve two SF conventions? Beats me)
May 25-28: Wiscon, in Madison, Wisconsin
July 6-8: The Heinlein Centennial, in Kansas City, Missouri
At Penguicon I’ll be a Nifty Guest, which is like a minor league guest of honor; at the Heinlein Centennial I’m a featured guest. At ConFusion and Boskone, I’ll be just a common schmoe.
I don’t have the second half of 2007 planned yet in terms of appearances. I haven’t decided yet about Worldcon; I’d like to go, but I’d need to figure out the logistics (and the cost). I do suspect I’ll want to go to other conventions in the second half of 2007 (I’ll have The Last Colony to flog, after all), and it might be a good thing to try some conventions that are new to me. If anyone has suggestions for good science fiction cons in the second half of the year, I’m open to suggestion.
Aside from conventions, I’ll also be doing bookstore and library appearances; in fact, I have a bookstore appearance in Cincinnati later this month (1/25, at the Joseph-Beth Bookstore — I’ll give this its own entry soon); I’ll let you all know when other such events and appearances occur.
That’s my 2007 appearance schedule so far. Let the stalking commence!
