A couple of months ago, my wife Mary scheduled me for a family reunion in Indiana--the same weekend as Readercon. I notified Readercon that I could not attend.
Then a family health problem cancelled the reunion. So I will be at Readercon after all, but as a paying guest, not a program participant. If you want to find me, I will have no cool ribbons or anything and will have no fun quote for Meet the Prose on Friday night.
I hope to see you there.
