You don't say!

Anticipation

A most aptly-named convention.

And while my head is still mostly focused on the San Diego Comic-Con (for which I fly out on Wednesday), I now have the complete and correct-for-now schedule of my program for WorldCon.

As a preamble, I remember the times I've been involved with WorldCon programming being the exciting but frustrating job of stuffing 10 pounds of sugar in a five pound bag, as hordes of professionals and luminaries fought to get their time in the limelight. I put my name and resume in the hat mostly because I do like doing panels, and I wasn't working in the Dealers Room this year. I expected to be passed over, or at most land up on one of the anime panels, since they may not have as many people volunteering for that.

Yow. Five panels, three where I'm the moderator. Guess I better cram a little preparation into the next couple of weeks.
