Spoiler: It’s me. I will be going. As its literary guest of honor.
I’m very excited and I’m looking forward to seeing folks there in September! More details to come, promise.
Hopefully they don’t try to rope you into the Dragon Awards ceremony. They have consistently done a poor job with that.
[No. NOT slash fic.]
What to bring – a sequel to ““The Shadow War of the Night Dragons: Book One: The Dead City: Prologue.”
Very cool! Hope to see you there!
I don’t recall you going previously, or was it some time ago you went last?
I guess it’s time to get my membership. :)
Excellent! I probably won’t be there, even though I’ve lived in Atlanta for 31 years. Been waiting until I’m an SFWA member, and/or have a lot of disposable income. Enjoy!
Dragon Con causes me to flee from downtown once a year.
There’s a joke about this, literary on the tip of my tongue, but I can’t quite find the words.
Congratulations! I was thinking of going to Australia for Worldcon, but now I’m no so sure. Perhaps I will go to Dragoncon (and get squished in the hotel lobby by the crowds :-)).
teflaime: Like that’s not going to happen!
Excellent! I may brave the crowds downtown to go in that case. If you have a chance to go to the parade, I HIGHLY recommend it!
Awesome news!! I so wish I could go! Who knows by then I may be able to. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Note for Catherine Asaro and anyone else intending to travel to Australia for Worldcon in 2020. You will find it is actually in New Zealand. And yes, Australia and New Zealand are two separate countries – and approx 2,500 km of Tasman sea separates the two countries.
Stephen, who knew?
Congratulations! Excellent choice for GoH.
Stephen! You can’t fool me! I’ve read the Australian Constitution! (For those who haven’t, it does in fact name New Zealand as a state. If they wanted to be. Which they didn’t).
Yay!! Dragon*Con is my home convention, and usually the only one I get to go to. I’m thrilled that you will be there!
Congrats!! Have fun!
