Just to head this off at the pass: I am not going to the worldcon this year. It's in San Antonio, Texas (not my favourite part of the United States) in early September (far too hot and unpleasant for me). Also, I am busy extruding fiction—I don't need the interruption.
(Yes, I am remiss at blogging. Yes, it's because I'm writing another novel. Another damn thick book! Always scribble, scribble, scribble! Eh, Mr Gibbon?)
