World Fantasy Prep

Making the last preparations for World Fantasy.

Flights are set. Need to find someplace to stay Sunday evening, as I'm returning on Monday now. Might be able to get my hotel to let me stay an extra night. I'll find out when I get there. Still trying to make sure I've got the transportation issue resolved. I sent in my membership services form for the airport shuttle, but I hadn't heard back on that. Sent emails today to the con chair and First Duty.

I'm almost finished with reading The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. I'm going to bring The Orphan's Tales along to read on the flights and when I've free moments. Wolfe and King will have to wait until I get back from the trip. I've submissions to read for the UWG meeting on the evening of 11/5. My first of three official probationary meeting. Only two pieces to read so far, and I've printed those out to tackle this weekend. I'll have my computer with me at the convention, so I'm going to continue work on the new outline and the "Sacrifices" rewrite. I received some good feedback this past Monday on the partial at my first UWG meeting, and I'm looking forward to tightening it and minimizing the intentional tense shifts so they're not so bothersome.

I had hell trying to find a hotel in Manhatton for Saturday night (I'm leaving a day early), as it's the marathon in New York city. This sucks, because everything was ludicrously expensive. Ludicrously. Fortunately, I'm now working at your New York office after, and have a room at the Tribeca Grand Sunday and Monday night, but on the Saturday I'm having to slum it near La Guardia...

Locke Lamora's lies are quite brilliant, eh? Scott'll be at WFC, last I heard. He's a riot.

Locke held together very well. I can definitely understand why it's one of the nominees. Very glad I picked up a hardcover when I was at Context earlier this month. Gave away my mass market to a friend at work who likes SFF, along with a spare copy of A Civil Campaign.

I've even toyed with the idea of jumping right into RSuRS. Its prologue works as an effective hook. So I may bring two books with me, rather than just the one.
