Looks like they’re going to try and launch the anthology that my story, “Wonder Maul Doll” is in at World Fantasy in Austin (barring disaster. Which does, of course, happen), and I have an email from one of the editors asking how many of us authors are going to be there.
It’s the first story of mine that’s going to be in an actual book, and I’d love to be there just to stare over a handful of copies, but tickets to Austin are running at $300. Also, I’m not sure if anybody I’d know really well would be there, and Jenn can’t afford to go, so I’d be pretty solo the whole time.
WFC tends to be more of a “pro” con, and if it’s anything like last year’s WFC, the programming is likely to suck. And you know what? For $150, I want some decent programming.
Perhaps I will be content with my free author’s copy and call it a year.
