The Economist notes the Worldcon

My father, John A. Sawyer, is an economist -- so, not surprisingly, he reads The Economist every week. And my dad just dropped me an email to say:
The Economist, which has a worldwide circulation, publishes a year-end edition in which there is a calendar of 4 or 5 events in each month of 2009. The first event listed for August is: "Montreal hosts the World Science Fiction Convention, where an author's fantasy can lead to a Hugo Award."
Now that's mainstream respectability!

The Economist's calendar is online here.
