Reno has two big attractions -- gambling and legalized prostitution. Oh yeah, and quickie divorces, though I gather that's fallen by the wayside since other states liberalized their marriage-negating procedures. So this is one city that was high on my list of places I never expected to wind up in.
So why did I come to the Worldcon here? Look up above. Check it out -- that's a picture of me with Robert Silverberg. We're on a first-name basis. I know him personally.
That's just cool.
