We’re going to Worldcon! TJ and Dave just booked our flights to Helsinki, with a detour to Germany for the Writing Excuses 2017 Cruise. There is a batch of new cabins that have just been released. Go to writingexcuses.com to register for the trip. This is our first WX cruise!

The shortlist for the John W. Campbell Memorial Award were released today. You’ll find them up here.

The SciFi Dustup of the Day is this awful interview with N.K.
