In Which I Invite You To Be Happy For Me

.
As always, I am on the road again.  Tonight I'm in London, in a hotel with limited Internet access, which is why there's no picture above.  Tomorrow morning I begin the long journey home, which is why my Monday post is being put up on Sunday.

And I am feeling particularly happy.

Some of you will already know why:  I have been chosen to be a guest of honor at MidAmeriCon 2, the 2016 World Science Fiction Convention.  This is a serious honor, and one that particularly delights me because the 1976 MidAmeriCon was my first Worldcon ever.  I went there with friends hoping, of course, to have a good time -- but also hoping to learn something from the many panels that would improve my writing and bring me a little closer to being a published writer.

Looking back, my plan seems to have worked.

That's all for now.  I'm exhausted and I'm going to sleep.

I hope your day was good also.

Congratulations for a well-earned honor.

I'm sure with you and Pat it's going to be a great Worldcon.
