I want to get a t-shirt or something to commerate my presence and participation in the best sf convention panel ever. I’m speaking, of course, about the Build a World panel at Wiscon 32. A full write up can be found here. Ted does an excellent job of recapturing the spirit of the thing.
I claim credit for the following:
- Cat Vacuumers
- Chlorine excreting elephants (I think it was Ben Rosenbaum who made them Cthuloid)
- Al cooking his face to begin the story
Deb came up with the Chocolate Mint.
I laughed so hard at this panel, my eyes started to water.
(Incidentally, I’ve also attended the nadir of con programming, a panel on advice to new writers at (IIRC) Torcon 3 with Robert Silverberg and a wannabe who shall remain nameless. Ask me about that one in private.)
