I am hoping that life will allow me to attend WorldCon this year. This is the annual conference of the World Science Fiction Society and the people who are responsible for the Hugo Award. Even if I haven't found a publisher, just going to such a prestigious conference would be incredible. Chicon 7, is being held over the Labor Day weekend. This is not your neighborhood Star Trek convention. The first Hugos were given in the 1950's. That's some serious history. If you're interested check out the conference web site: Chicon 7
Check out the membership list. I want my name on that list this time next year.
