What I'm doing at the con.
Now that I'm retired, I'm trying to pick up my fanac where I
originally left it at Torcon II in 1973.
I did a panel on linguistics (as I like to say, the best-kept secret in America) at ValhallaCon last fall
and now have been asked to be on 4 panels at Norwescon 33.
Two of the panels I'm on (the ones on Fri 4/2) were in my specialty, and two of them weren't.
And, now that the con is over, I can say that both panels on
(the ones I did handouts for) were very successful, which
to me means:
- They were well-attended.
- The 9am one, which I'd expected to be
sparsely attended, was SRO, with people in the hall outside.
- In fact, the con committee
want me to do it again next year in a bigger room.
- There were lots of good questions.
- So people were interested. (see above)
- It was fun.
- Both for me and -- to judge by the compliments --
for the other people too.
