Nessa's Adventures at Worldcon ~ Anticipation

30 Comments:

A few corrections and added info:

The "Guy Who Did Everything" in the opening ceremonies is Marc Garneau -- First Canadian in Space.

Also Tom Doherty not only works for TOR Books, he founded the company!
It's a Kaffeeklatsch (from the German, means chatting over coffee)

The "Man of Wonder" in the red jacket is none other than David Kyle, who among other things was a founding member of the Futurians and attended the first Worldcon.

About defending Episodes 1, 2 and 3: sorry, but no

About Kid's programming: while some events were restricted to kids, not all of them were and unaccompanied adults were welcome.

Glad you enjoyed your first Worldcon!

Thank you for the name correction - KAFFEEKLATSCH which I will go and change in the comments. I will add the other info into the picasa account.

As for Episodes 1, 2, and 3 its not that I ENJOYED them. They were unfortunately, pretty bad. BUT I don't think its the fault of the STORY but of the STORYTELLER. I do think the Palpatine storyline was done very well - again because it was nuanced and now TOLD to us as the gentleman in the audience said. Hence, my "defense".
