This year’s World Science Fiction Convention starts a week Thursday, on August 24th, in LA. I’m doing a bunch of programming this year, as well as dusting off my tuxedo for the Hugo Awards ceremony, where I’m a finalist for my story I, Robot. I’m doing several signings, as well, but if you can’t make it to WorldCon, you can pre-order custom-inscribed signed copies (with free US shipping, too!) from Borderlands Books. Hope to see you at the WorldCon!

    Hey, Cory – if you really want people to have your schedule, how about creating an iCalendar (.ics) file for people to download, or putting it up on Eventful or Upcoming? (someday tools will exist to make it easy… see http://www.calconnect.org)

    Will your schedule include gracing the Friday and/or Saturday night parties for Anticipation, the 2009 Montreal Worldcon bid? I’ll be watching the paint dry in la belle province, but the others throwing the party would surely appreciate seeing you there!

    Really enjoyed your koffeklatsche…once we got away from all that noise downstairs.
