Now it can be told...

Yesterday afternoon, Renovation, the 69th World Science Fiction Convention, announced that Ken Scholes and I will be Masters of Ceremony for the Hugo awards.

I am beyond thrilled about this, and very excited to share the honor with my great good friend [info]kenscholes. It'll be like Milk and Cheese go Hollywood!

If you're already planning to be at Reno this August, be sure to put the Hugo Awards ceremony on your schedule. If you haven't made plans yet, hopefully this will put you over the top.

I hope to see every one of you there.

For those wondering about my health, Renovation falls about four weeks after my liver surgery, and just before I resume my chemotherapy regimen. And yes, my oncologists and I planned it this way on purpose, for this very reason.

Congratulations! That is wonderful indeed. We will be very, very sorry to miss you and Ken. I'm certain, beyond a doubt, that the two of you will be fabulous. Very, very happy for both of you.

I expect you to do the Merv Griffin story, in that case.

That does sound like immense fun (for the audience, and for you and Ken too)! So glad the scheduling worked out.

Sadly, the timing is poor for me work-wise.

Much as I would love to go (and as much I threatened Howard Tayler that I would go), there's this small issue of living in Australia.

Congratulations, and have fun!
