No such luck. I hear there was just as much excitement, just as many panels, and just as many fabulous parties as always. It’s like they don’t care.
They even gave out just as many awards as usual. Well, even if I couldn’t attend, at least I can read the same award-winning fantasy as everyone else. See, that’s what’s great about awards — they’re fair to everybody.

- Alif the Unseen, G. Willow Wilson (Grove)
- “Let Maps to Others,” K.J. Parker (Subterranean, Summer 2012)
