If anyone else is planning to attend, let me know, and we'll try to meet up. I haven't been to a Philcon in a very long time. Actually, it was my first SF con many, many years ago. I went there with a friend, shaydand he had the good fortune to have made the acquaintance of Janet Kagan. Who then brought us in to the SFWA party. Which for a 20 year old who wanted to be a Fantasy writer, felt a bit like a religious experience. Many genuine and wonderful people. Even if I was in awe of quite a number of them. Which was kind of odd, because I'd been chatting with many of those folks on the Wednesday Evening chat on Delphi for almost a year.
I'm looking forward to it, to see how much has changed in the years since I last attended, and how much is the same. I hope to see many folks there.
