World Con 2004

I'll be away at World Con starting Friday, but since the Hynes Convention Center claims to have wireless internet, I should be able to check email, etc., if anyone needs to reach me. I'll try to post a con report as it progresses.

The World Con/ Noreascon site has a programming page up now that gives you a little overview of what's going on. And check out the actual schedule! From showings of LOTR to marathon Firefly viewings, there's a little something for everyone: karate, medieval weaponry, costumes, gaming, filking, astronomy, panels on writing, opportunities to have coffee (or beer) with your favorite writer, and the presentation of the Hugo Awards on Saturday! (There's even a panel on deconstructing Mary Sue, which, of course, immediately makes me think of LJ).

Besides guests of honor Terry Pratchett and William Tenn, there are many, many more participants coming to this convention! Authors, editors, artists, publishers, .. some of the best in the genre form will be in attendance! Glen Cook, Neil Gaiman, Lois McMaster Bujold, Larry Niven, Robert Silverberg, Brian Aldiss to name a few!

Big thanks to those who are helping out at the Farscape table this weekend! and For anyone else who might be attending or who is thinking of attending, please feel free to stop by the table, say hello, rest your weary legs, and take some fabulous freebies (generously provided by Farops and many others)! :D
