So, I have mentioned that I had to move. I am giving up a house, that while it had issues, i loved living in.
I have spent a while trying to find somewhere new, and I will be signing the lease and getting keys over the next few hours, moving into the new place tonight and tomorrow.
The new place had no chance of living up to that, and to be honest it isn’t even close. However, it has the advantage that i will now be sharing with only one person, and secure underground parking for my car.
However it is large enough for my weekly game, large enough to have a small group of friends over, about ten – fifteen. On the plus side it is about ten minutes stroll to work, downhill in the morning. Also there is no easy bus to work. The only bus that passes by would take me further from work.
Once i get back from Texas and settled in I will post some more thoughts on the place.
So, I have had a busy month. I have found a new place to live, sign contracts tomorrow, and then get keys and begin moving in.
Then on Wednesday i head to San Antonio for the 2013 Worldcon. I am pretty excited, though the travel is going to stretch me to my limits. I have a very long Layover!
I have panels at this years Worldcon, three of them.
What Would Happen If We Could Easily Publish Fanfic
Friday 12:00 – 13:00 Politics and legalities of fanfic, now and in the future. How does it affect what we write? Does the new e-publishing fanfic imprints change the game and how?
New SF Communities in New Milieus
Saturday 12:00 – 13:00 SF/F is become more accepted and more integrated into more places every day. How has this come about? How can we nurture these communities? What can we learn from them?
Introduction to Eurocons
Sunday 14:00 – 15:00 What is a Eurocon? With next year’s Eurocon following shortly after the Worldcon, we take a brief look at what they are.
This is a pretty good schedule, with some topic i am looking forward to getting into. Add in the various other panels I want to get to, and the Shamrokon Table that i will be managing. It shall be a busy time, filled with seeing friends and catching up with them.
Anyway, hope to see you some of you soon.
