Hijinks Ensue

Interaction debriefing

Interaction wasn't merely my first Worldcon, it was in fact my first con of any kind. When I first heard about it, I mainly wanted to go so that I would have a chance to meet some of my favourite authors in person (who knows, maybe some of the talent would rub off ;). I didn't know anyone before I went, I don't drink, I don't generally go to parties because I find that I don't fit in, and I'm not very good at socialising with strangers. Since for many people the main point of conventions seems to be to meet up with old friends, socialise in the bar, and go to late night parties, you might think that I must have hated it. Well, no. Actually I enjoyed it a lot. I'm already considering going to next year's Eastercon and trying to work out if I could afford to travel to next year's Worldcon. Read on to find out what I got up to at Interaction.
