convention schedule! virtual events ahoy!

January 21, 2021

I took the day off yesterday to watch the Inauguration. President Biden and Vice-President Harris. It feels great.

The 2021 events calendar is off to the races, with a new round of virtual events. Here are the first couple:

I’ll be taking part in virtual Boskone next month, February 12-14.

March 19-21 is the International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts, also online this year.

After that, things get a little nebulous. I’ve got several late summer/early autumn events on my radar that are crossing their fingers to be in-person, but that will depend on vaccine rollout. I’m hoping things will start turning around now that there’s an administration whose motto isn’t “what plan?” and that doesn’t have a policy of belligerent neglect.

I’ve signed up with my health care provider, but given how low priority I am (Work at home? No health risks? Under 70? Yeah…) it’s going to be awhile before my turn comes up. But trust me, when it does, I am so there.

Stay safe out there, folks.

    Glad to see someone that wants to get the vaccine! I’ll be getting mine today, I’m a front line healthcare worker so that’s the only reason I’m getting it even now.

    I too am so glad the new administration are in place officially. Maybe we can get things turned around for the better.

    Oh hurrah! My 94 year old grandmother and mom both got theirs last week and it’s a huge relief.

    Soon, soon…

    It would be kind of fun if they did the ping pong ball draft for those of us outside the high risk groups, right out of Contagion.
    Off topic have you seen a trailer for “Shadow in the Clouds” Could be right up your alley?
