In keeping with the Herkes household tradition of visiting distant places when festivals just happen to be going on, I’m in Detroit for Michigan Comic Con just as some kind of big downtown weekend shindig will be happening.
I thought I’d be too tired to blog, and maybe I will be tomorrow. But tonight? WHEEEEE! Exhausted, but not tired. If that makes sense. So. Documenting experience while still awake.
In other news, this part of downtown Detroit is all shiny now (my last visit was over 15 years ago and much of it felt like a ghost town) Also there’s evidently a tunnel to Canada.
A. Tunnel. To. Another. Country.
I need to come back here with more days to spare sometime soonish. The traffic patterns and street layout are still as wacky as I remember, tho. We got within sight of the hotel but it was very much a “can’t get there from here” situation not helped by Google Maps thinking a bunch of streets were closed that don’t shut down until tomorrow.
ANYway. We are here. The books are here. The fun starts tomorrow at noon. I’m a featured author for Bard’s Tower, in company with two other great authors. I’m staying at a Grand Old hotel with all the mod cons in a really swank room. I’m over the moon and more.
Yeah, I know. WorldCon is going on this weekend. Hugo awards. It’s a big deal.
Me, I’m here. And. I’m. LOVING. It. Have some random pictures.
