The final word on my Worldcon appearance

The doctors cleared me for travel to Worldcon.

My wife said no.

Flight cancelled. Hotel cancelled. Membership up for sale.

  1. I’m sorry (don’t blame the wife, mind you – I’d feel the same) – I’m happy to volunteer to help man your table in the dealer room – please let me know if I can help.

    • Oh, I understanding where she is coming from. 🙂

      I don’t have a table at Worldcon. As a rule, I don’t sell at a con I’m not driving to. Just too much of a nuisance. Thanks anyway!

  2. I think your wife is wise. I agree with her. There’ll be other Con’s but only if you’re well.

  3. Sorry to hear you won’t be there… but ain’t it nice having someone making sure you do what’s best for you – even when you may not think so

  4. A disappointment for you, but I’m on her side. Better to err on the side of caution for a while.
