It’s getting towards that time when I really have to commit to some 2012 travel plans. I’ve bought a plane ticket to Melbourne, so I’ll be there for the NatCon, even though I’m still to make hotel reservations or buy a membership. I’m also genuinely torn between Toronto for World Fantasy Convention and Chicago for WorldCon. I think, even after all of the discussions I’ve had lately, that I will likely opt for Toronto. I am thinking about changing things up on that a little, but I suspect that’s how it will play. There are also family breaks for April and December, but we’ll see about those.
Hm. Now I think about it, there is one argument to go to WorldCon in August instead of World Fantasy in November: the best of the year. The WFC trip always plays havoc with prep for that. Something to ponder.
