Helsinki! Tallinn! WorldCon!!

Maybe I should mention that I’m going to WorldCon?  Yeah, I should definitely probably mention it.  Since the convention starts today, and I’m getting there tomorrow, perhaps I should have even mentioned this before now.  Possibly?

I’ve made the best plans for this.  Two overnight flights with a twelve hour layover that gets me to the con a day late, just in time to rush to the only two panels I’ll be on for the duration.  I’m going to be at my utter cleverest, let me tell you.

Liar’s Panel
204, 15:00 – 16:00
Effie Seiberg, John Purcell, J.Robert Tupasela, Laura Pearlman, Anaea LayA panel where the panelists are required to make up outrageous answers to audience questions.

I may just do my best to tell the truth for the duration of this one.  Between jet lag and no sleep, I’ll be so divorced from reality that’s probably the best way to get a good lie in.

Darkness at the Heart of Original Folktales
216, 16:00 – 17:00
Delia Sherman, Linn, Anaea Lay, Michael R. UnderwoodFolk tales have recently got fairly dark retellings, but of course they were very dark originally as well. The panel discusses the dark origins of folktales.

Maybe I’ll share my favorite version of Snow White.  It’s the one where she nopes out of eating poisoned things, then goes back to the palace with her new allies, kills everybody, and becomes a benevolent ruler.  That’s a real version.

After the con, I’ll be darting over to Tallinn for a few days.  I have tales to tell and plan to tell them when I get back.
