When I tell my friends I’m off to the World Fantasy Convention, they always think I’ll be attending a more exotic sort of event than it actually is.

When I explain that it’s a gathering of writers, artists, and editors, they sort of furrow their brows and say, “What the hell kind of fantasy is that?”

Mine, apparently.  Sorry.

But anyway, yes, I am off as of tomorrow morning.  Friday evening I’ll be at the mass signing, probably arriving late, and will also be at a 3pm panel on Thursday (assuming my plane arrives on time).  The topic is a nifty one:

Pacific 2/3: The Coral Sword: Material Culture of Undersea Civilizations

Captain Nemo bragged about how he and his men were entirely supplied by the sea. Some fantasy creatures and cultures never go onto dry land. What would an undersea society look like? What and how might they eat? (No fire!) What would their cities look like? (Gravity, not so much of a problem.)

Ctein, Sharon Mock, Eddie Schneider, Dave Smeds, Walter Jon Williams (M)

Hope to see you all there!

So. Wait. That makes those of us who know what WFC is NOT your friends? Gee…

“What would an undersea society look like?”

Uuuum … it would involve quite a lot of swimming … ?
