The plan at this point, barring disaster, is to unveil The List here next week. The full list will go up on its own page at the Sad Puppies site and go live at the same time, more or less.
This requires me to finish collation in a week, which should be possible, although I’m not going to guarantee that my spelling is 100%. For that matter, there have been quite a few judgment calls and will be more, but I’m erring on the side of generosity, so if anything I’m over-counting rather than under-counting.
I’m going to be at Lunacon from March 18 through March 20, so anyone who’s attending and feels inclined to brave the temporal anomalies and space-time portals of the M.C. Escher Memorial Hotel… (ahem) Hilton Westchester, you’ll be able to meet me there. I asked to be on a fair few panels and the programming is what it usually is (aka not finalized yet) so I’m likely to be needing to bend time and space to make everything – it’s one of the things that makes Lunacon fun.
For those who wonder, I’ll be the one with the Dracula Never Sparkled badge and (if I can find it – there have been Demon Berserker Kitten depredations in the badge zone) the Gay Mormon Male With a Great Rack badge. There will also be a high probability of flair, and possibly also sparkle. And glitter. Be warned. The glitter has a tendency to follow everyone everywhere. I think it may be sentient.
I’ll also be at Ravencon this year (April 29 through May 1) for anyone who’d prefer the environs of Williamsburg, VA.
I think that one counts as half an update, or maybe less.
Planning for the Puppy Presence at Worldcon continues under wraps until we have things sufficiently stable to make an announcement. The goal there is to be at the convention, have fun (lots of fun), and meet friends face to face. If I can arrange it there will be a PuppyGate in honor of the Jeopardy question and visitors will have to cross the PuppyGate to enter the fun zone.
And now for the obligatory notices to finish off the post:
Obligatory notice 1: It might be too late to sign up to nominate, but you can still sign up to vote!
Obligatory notice 2: Read, watch, listen to, then nominate.
Obligatory notice 3: The Demon Berserker Kitten will be petted. Now.
