Last day of WorldCon. Started the day by attending one final Robin Hobb panel, “Systems of Magical Healing”. It was an interesting panel, where authors discussed different ways of implementing magical healing in fiction and how to keep it interesting. After that panel I had pretty much seen all the panels I intended to see this WorldCon, so I decided to instead attend a couple of panels that Kristina had picked (she also attended the magical healing panel). This turned out to be a good choice, since I ended up attending some panels I wouldn’t necessarily have chosen myself, but which turned out to be quite interesting.
Another fun day at WorldCon. After last night getting rather late due to the Hugo awards I decided to sleep in a bit and only arrived at WorldCon a little before 11. The late Hugo awards had left Leona even more tired than me, so she didn’t arrive until late in the afternoon, but fortunately I had company for the panels from my new friend Kristina, the Robin Hobb fan from Finland I mentioned in my previous post. She actually also happens to be, like me, a Fennoswede (a more correct term would be Finland-Swede, but I like the term Fennoswede as coined (to my knowledge) by SatW).
What a day… Quite tired now, arrived at WorldCon at about 8:45 this morning, 15 minutes before the doors even opened, and left at around 22:30 after the Hugo ceremony ended. But it’s been a very fun day.
I haven’t felt like writing for a while, even though there’s been plenty of movies and games to write about, but now I’m back, at least for this one post.
