Apparently next years World Fantasy Convention is going to be in Saratoga Springs, New York. I’d love to get there if I’m still in the area (and maybe even if I’m not and can squeeze it into the budget). Anyone actually get there this year that wants to tell me what it was like in person?
I see that smile.
