Speaking of bad news. . .

Steve and I are very sorry, indeed, to announce that we will NOT be attending the 74th World Science Fiction Convention, MidAmeriCon II, to be held in Kansas City, August 17-21.

A direct casualty of this is the signing we were to do at the Bradley Fair Barnes and Noble, in Wichita, Kansas, on August 14.

We apologize to everyone who thought they’d have a chance to meet us, or to renew our acquaintance.  And we especially apologize for the lateness of the hour.  Up until this past Saturday, we were certain that we’d be attending.

So, here’s what we’d like you to do — go to the con, and have a terrific time.  Raise a glass of whatever it is you’re having, and share the toast with friends:  “To Plan B!” which is our own most-used salute.  Drop us a note, if you can, and tell us about the con. We’d like that.

So that’s the bad news.

Again, we apologize, but — necessity is.

  1. Sorry to hear this!

    I’m not attending, either…that’s the weekend we move our only son to his new home at university. My husband points out that cool things to do are infinite. Money and personal time are not.

    I like the Plan B toast! A special concillation desert may be in order as well.

  2. bad news abounds this week darn it! Another friend of mine died this week (surgery complications) 🙁
