Georgie, meanwhile, was on the "Judging the Tiptree" panel with co-judges Liz Henry and Matt Ruff, recounting the intellectual adventures of arriving at this year's winner, the very deserving "Air: Or Have, Not Have," by Geoff Ryman.
Since we prudently packed the car and checked out before breakfast, it was realtively easy for us to then disengage and duck out, which is our wont. The Signout and Dead Cow Party attract, but the prospect of getting home at a reasonable hour is even more attractive, so we drove home with no problem--having a much better time of than the poor souls who were stuck in Chicago or couldn't even get there by a huge storm cell that closed down O'Hare airport. Even that has not spoiled the tast of what, from all I am seeing, seemed to have been a wonderful con for all concerned.
Congratulations to the WisCon Thirty Committee. A masterfully run con, a beautiful memory book worthy of a WorldCon, and many many more good memories. Here's to thirty more!
