In just a few days I get on a bus and head down to Santa Monica to visit with my family down there for a week. It’ll be nice to spend fourth of July someplace where I can actually see the fireworks!
After a week in the Southern California sun I fly out to England to visit with John in Leicester. And then in August the two of us head over to London for Loncon 3! It will be the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention, is looking to be the largest one ever and will be quite the shindig. There will be a significant Bay Area presence, including the Tiki Dalek, so that’ll be nice. Currently I’m scheduled to be on one panel, but am otherwise mostly free of responsibilities and looking forward to exploring my first non-US Worldcon.
And as if that were not enough, one week after Loncon John and I hop on a plane to Dublin for Shamrokon, which will be my first visit to Ireland and my first Eurocon. It’s going to be a busy summer.
