I'm the Westercon Fan Guest of Honor in 2016!  
IMG 3972I'm very pleased to announce that I will be the Fan Guest of Honor at Westercon 69, to be held in Portland, Oregon on the Fourth of July weekend in 2016. The other GoHs are John Scalzi and Charlie Stross. (The committee assures me that there will be at least one additional GoH who is not a balding white male.)

I'm totally thrilled about this. I've never been a GoH before!

In other news, I recently received my 20-year medallion for attending 20 annual gay square dance conventions. (See photo.)

Also, as long as I'm blogging, I urge you to check out the Cosmic Sci-Fi Bundle over at storybundle.com. Pay what you will for a big bundle of science fiction ebooks, and benefit the Clayton Memorial Medical Fund, Jay Lake's chosen charity. But hurry! This offer ends at midnight EST tonight!

I think they should go for the gusto and have no GoHs but balding white males. And then put you all on the same panels, all the time.

I kid. Congratulations!
