They like me! They really like me!

(To quote Sally Field, for the humor-impaired …)

So, Capricon — a major Chicago-area science-fiction convention — polled its attendees to see which Guests of Honor from their previousw 29 years they’d most like to have come back for the 30th year. I’m honored and thrilled to be one of those chosen. Capricon 30, a four-day con in February 2010, will have these author guests of honor:

  • Frederik Pohl
  • Spider & Jeanne Robinson
  • Robert J. Sawyer

Yay! (I was Author Guest of Honor at Capricon 17 in 1997.)

Meanwhile, they want me back in Nebraska! I’ll be Author Guest of Honor at OSFest 3, to be held in Omaha, Nebraska, July 23-25, 2010 (next year); Pierre and Sandy Pettinger, and other key members of Nebraska fandom, fondly remembered me being Guest of Honor at Andromeda 2 in Lincoln in 1995, and want me back. Cool!

(And, just for the record, both of these invitations came before the Flash Forward TV series was picked up.)
