WisCon: Arrival

I can't call it day one, exactly, because things don't get really rolling until tomorrow, but I have arrived in Madison, attended one event, and had a lovely dinner with [tumblr.com profile] pierceaholic and [tumblr.com profile] magnetsorwhatever. Now I am sacked out in my room, despite it being before 10pm local time (aka 8pm on my body clock), because I had to get up at four-goddamn-thirty in the freaking morning to catch my flight. Hopefully I will crash soon and get enough rest to be perky for the rest of the con.

The one event was great. A local bookstore hosts a Guests of Honor reception and reading every year to kick off the con. This year's GoH are Sofia Samatar, Justine Larbalestier, and Nalo Hopkinson, an awesome line-up, and I enjoyed listening to all of them read their work. Samatar and Larbalestier each read an excerpt from their most recently published novel, and Hopkinson -- who is one of my all-time favorite readers -- shared a short story from a forthcoming anthology.

Now I need to retire to an easy chair (my room has two of them, it's pretty cozy) and carefully peruse the program book, because I have no idea how to choose between all the interseting-sounding panels. Wish me luck!

It is too bad they are the same weekend. Hope you're having a good time!
