World Fantasy Blues

At this point, I'm pretty much resigned to the fact that I won't be attending the World Fantasy Convention this year -- which is kind of idiotic considering it's being held in my own state, up in Saratoga, New York.

It's entirely because of the rooming situation. I'm on the waiting list for a room to share with pgtremblay at one of the tertiary overflow hotels -- the only one that's not over a mile away from the main convention site -- but I think odds are I'm screwed. Paul will most likely have to return to his original rooming plan, which involved crashing on someone else's floor. I guess it's a good thing I didn't buy a membership yet.

It's a shame. I love World Fantasy -- in some ways I love it even more than World Horror. But next year it's being held in Calgary, so, uh...maybe I'll get to go in 2009!
