At WorldCon, Day 1

We drove to Reno today; it took just over four hours. The hotel is enormous and the room is comfortable. The convention center is similarly enormous, but I'm starting to find my way around. I met Alan Smale near the registration desk - he's one of nearly twenty people I'm hoping to run into while I'm here. It's taken me hours to begin processing all the sessions I might be interested to attend. Today I went to a session about classic sf movies. Bob Eggleton was one of the people on the panel, and so I was able to meet him in person. He is a huge fan of classic sf, particularly monster, movies. I learned all kinds of things (especially since this isn't my area of expertise!).

I'll try to keep reporting each day that I'm here. It will be very busy and fun!


  1. Anything you can tell us about your adventures is cool with me. :D One of these days I'll finally be able to go, too.

  2. I'm sure you guys will make it to WorldCon one day.
