Hey all,

For the Canadian fans I would suggest looking into World Con. It's being held in Montreal this year. For Ishara: Kay is also going to be there :P

This is the guest list for Montreal:

I am looking into world con in Australia 2010. I was planning to go to Australia in 2010, so i am checking now if it is actually possible for me :P
A few friends are probably going there as well.

Anyone else who might consider going?

Anyone who has experience with world Con?

I recognized about four of those names. And I have never read anything they wrote.

Oh, man! Esther Friesner and Nancy Kress alone are enough to make me want to go.

And any chance to suck up to the Haydens is fried gold. (Happy I used it in a sentence, SP?)

But I can't.

Hehe, I know, I wish i could go to Canada too.
I heard so many good stories about World Con :)

That's why i am looking into the possibility of Melbourne.
But perhaps 2011 will be the USA?

So want to go, if only to meet GGK again. Actually the GGK website/ boards, BrightWeavings denizens are having a get together (an annual thing) in conjunction with the convention. They hang out with GGK, have dinner, he buys the drinks - and they are often treated to a brief reading or discussion of new material. (He NEVER does this. He doesn't tease, he doesn't blab, and he certainly doesn't blog. he's almost done a draft of his next book and won't even reveal what time period he's using. Guh.)

Have heard though, that prices for World Con are OBSCENE.

The prices are very high:(. World Con is about 5 days and so you pay a lot. I heard something about 150 euros.
It's 240 CAD for the whole 5 days and 175 for weekend membership.

The GCK meet sounds amazing :) (for a fan)
