Charlie’s mentioned it on his own Web site now, so I’ll mention it here:
I will be a substitute Guest of Honor at Minicon 46, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, April 22 – 24. I’m stepping in for Charles Stross, who is bowing out because of “medical issues affecting a close family member.” I hope you’ll all take a moment to think good thoughts for Charlie and his family.
This appearance was unexpected and I wish could have happened under different circumstances; nevertheless I am very much looking forward visiting Minnesota, which has some of my favorite people in it. As far as I know this will be my only visit to that fine state this year, so if you’re in the area and would like to see me, this is where and when to do it.
See you there.
