Off to China!

Tomorrow, Carolyn and I start our Long March to China! :) We take two flights tomorrow -- Dawson to Whitehorse, then Whitehorse to Vancouver, and we stay overnight in Vancouver. Then on Wednesday, it's two more flights: Vancouver to Beijing, and Beijing to Chengdu.

We'll be attending the Chengdu International Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention; others attending include David Brin, Neil Gaiman, Nancy Kress, and Michael Swanwick.

And then we head on to Beijing for five days of sightseeing (including a day-long side trip to hike along the Great Wall).

While we're gone, some needed carpentry and repairs will be done on Berton House.

Have a great time in China, Rob and Carolyn!

Chengdu is supposed to be a marvelous province to visit ... Have no doubt you two will enjoy yourselves there, probably get some sightseeing in with Nancy Kress, Neil Gaimon and the others.

Saw the film version of "Stardust", Gaimon's 1999 novel. Was a wonderfully whimsical comic homage to the fantasy genre. Very enjoyable.

Hm, the Chinese SF markets are not so good about responding to submissions.
