watership up

no-show

Copied from an email I sent to Registration, but I daresay they're swamped.

Last year I won a Guest membership in the blood drive raffle, and also bought a membership for my Faithful European Companion, Valerie Shoemaker. Unfortunately we have run out of money and can afford neither hotel nor travel.

Can we roll over our Conmemberships to next year?

I will be better qualified as a Guest in any case, as the novel* I wrote with Larry Niven will be out in June.

*PS - The Goliath Stone, Tor Books: nanotechnology used to deflect a Dinosaur Killer into Earth orbit, and mundane panic therefor. Larry's title was Tiny Disasters; mine was Small Wonder. I have been told that a publisher would have retitled the Old and New Testaments, War God of the Hebrews and The Thing With Three Souls. I believe this without reservation. MJH
