So, How Was Your WorldCon?

Monday, September 9th, 2013

I’ve been answering this question all week. And that answer is … complicated. We traveled by car from DeKalb, IL to San Antonio, TX over 2 days, as we had to bring Caitlin with us to WorldCon, and traveling by plane with her is both expensive and challenging due to her liquid diet. It was […]

WorldCon Schedule! (The beginning, anyway)

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

This is my initial WorldCon Schedule. It is not the combined Thomas Family Schedule, and it does not include a bunch of meetings/meals/etc. with people that I’ve yet to schedule. Nor, alas, does it yet contain a live SF Squeecast recording. We’re hoping that gets added (request has been made), but we’ll see.  ETA: Squeecast […]

Caitlin’s First WisCon

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

All in all, it went pretty well. Caitlin was decidedly chill the whole weekend. We drove up on Thursday afternoon, after a lovely couple of days hanging out with Shira, who had flown out a couple of days before. Caitlin *really* enjoyed the Gathering, which is the entry period into WisCon, with tea, shenanigans, a […]

WisCon Approacheth!

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

And our entire family will be in attendance. This WisCon is also the official launch for Queers Dig Time Lords! Thus, I have a very light schedule in deference to Michael’s book launch. It really is a splendid book. I got to read the manuscript. (And you should totally come to the QDTL/Outer Alliance party […]
