Yes, I realize that SDCC 2010 was last week. However, I kind of had a lot of stuff to do when I got home after the convention (I’ve only really finished unpacking just now), so now it’s time to get my notes together and let you know what happened during the con, based on my journal entries from the trip. This isn’t precisely going to be a “news” post – partially because it’s late, and partially the news stories from the con went up during the con, so you’ve probably already read them. More…

We’re one week away from Polaris (formerly Toronto Trek), which falls somewhere between Toronto’s author-heavy Ad Astra and the media-saturated interconnected conventions hosted at the end of the summer.
Guests include Robert Sawyer, Kelley Armstrong, Julie E. Czerneda, Karl Schroeder, Ed the Sock, Voyager‘s Ethan Phillips, Torchwood‘s Kai Owens, Galactica‘s Mark Sheppard, and the original Bionic Woman, Lindsay Wagner, among many others.
I’m on four panels (see below), and hope to hang with some Bureau-crats….
Penguicon 2010 has come and gone, with SF, authors, fantasy, complex discussions, parties, Linux, and a real-life superhero.
That most-remarkable of Conventions, Michigan’s Penguicon approaches! Past guests have included Neil Gaiman, Vernor Vinge, Charles Stross, Randall Munroe, Elizabeth Bear, and John Scalzi. Guests this year include Karl Schroeder, Geoffrey Landis, Spider and Jeanne Robinson, Joe Brockmeier, the Ferrett, and many others.
I’m giving one workshop and sitting on four panels. It would be great to meet some Bureau readers. Anyone coming to Penguicon?
You can find more information here. My schedule and some videos appear below.
Alright, I’ve gotten back from Day 2 of Kumoricon (a little early, there weren’t any other panels I wanted to go to today, and I’d spent all I could afford in the dealer room). Now that I can get online, here are my thoughts on day 2. Oh, and for those who are hoping for photographs and other pictures, I’ll get those for you later.
Well, I just got back from Kumoricon 2009. My reports and thoughts on day 1 of the Con, and what I said, saw, and did, below the break.
Anticipation, the 67th World Science Fiction Convention, has come and gone. I’ve assembled a video that conveys the slightest idea of what happened:
The 56th Hugo Awards went out tonight in Montreal. Julie Czerneda once again proved herself SF’s most whimsically charming host, the good twin of Delerium from Sandman, grounded and lacking in malice. And speaking of Hugo winners….
‘Cause, Bureau-crats are an unusual lot. We like to read posts. We’re less likely to comment, perhaps preferring to wait until we have something intelligent or witty to say. But….
