This year, I have been on what I’m privately calling my ‘farewell tour’. Given my life expectancy and declining health, this is not unreasonable. Even if I live much more than another year, I do not expect to be in adequate shape to travel past about the end of this summer. If I am wrong, well, it shall be delightful to have a ‘reunion tour’. But for now, I have no travel plans past LoneStarCon 3, a/k/a Worldcon.

Lisa Costello and I will be attending LoneStarCon 3.
The only plan I have after WorldCon is to attend OryCon if I am able to leave my house. If my health holds better than expected, I may pop up at a few other Pacific Northwest or Bay Area events in the fall and over the winter, but that doesn’t seem terribly likely.
It’s been a lot of fun rattling around this circuit the past fourteen years. My profound thanks to everyone who has helped make my convention-going life as much fun as it has been. All of you party on and party loud.
