Looks like I will be at the Jack Williamson Lectureship this year. I had wanted to go to show my support. I hope ENMU keeps having them. Getting down to Portales was looking like a problem, but I've now got a ride with Connie Willis and Walter Jon Williams, which I'm looking forward to as well. These two have a wealth of information on writing and science fiction, not to mention some hilarious anecdotes.
This year's lecturship theme is: Translocation/Transformation: Conjuring the Future and will feature another friend of mine, Steven Gould. The cost of admission is $8.00 - I usually spend several times that amount on books while there.
