Scott and me are gunna be guests of honour at ConFusion 2008 in Detroit in January. This is the first time either one of us has ever been a guest of honour at a science fiction convention (or any con for that matter) and we are dead excited. And to add to the joy—lots of other splendid people will be there, including Mr John Scalzi who is toastmaster. What bliss he will have saying mean things about me and Scott. That bastard!
I can’t wait!
We also get to suggest panel topics. We’ve come up with a few cunning and provocative (wink, wink) ones like “Originality is Overrated” and “Science Fiction is Not Dying”, but if you guys can think of any panels you’ve seen at cons that you thought were particularly excellent, or have some ideas for panels that have never been used, let me know. It will be a lot of fun to do some that aren’t your bog standard “Women in Science Fiction” or “Fantasy versus Science Fiction” or “I’m so bored I’ll eat my own eyeballs”.
La la la! I’m going to be a guest of honour!
