I previously mentioned here that I would be attending the Nebula weekend in New York City, this coming weekend. That’s still true, but not as true as before. The event is taking place over the whole weekend, starting on Thursday evening. Turns out I have a prior engagement—my daughter’s acting in Much Ado About Nothing, with Arlington Children’s Theater. So I’ll catch the Friday evening performance here (I’m the designated videographer, or one of them), and then catch Amtrak’s Acela to NYC Saturday morning. So I’ll be at the Nebulas for the Saturday afternoon panels and business meeting, and attending the awards banquet. Then (urk) I’m catching a red-eye back to Boston. Penn Station at 3 a.m.—whee! But it beats paying over 200 bucks for a hotel room in New York, just to sleep badly and then take the train.
I’ve been wanting to ride the Acela for years. Haven’t had an excuse, till now. I hope this is one of its good runs, free of malfunctions.
By the way, you can see who’s up for the award here: Nebula Final Ballot.
