I won’t be going to Worldcon in Montreal. When I was thinking about it last fall, I priced the whole trip at around $850. I just priced it out and it comes to around $1400 and that is not at the main hotel. Last year I could have reserved a luxury room there quite cheaply, right now the nearby hotels are full.

Next year Worldcon is in Melbourne Australia. It would cost around $3500. As nice as it would be to visit Australia, I think I’ll have to pass on this one, too. The $3500 is for tourist class and I don’t think that my 6’3″ frame could survive long in seats designed for 5’6″ people.

That leaves 2011 and Reno – that actually sounds like fun. Winter of 2010 I will make a decision, but I would like to attend at least one Worldcon before I’m too old to enjoy it.


Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
