In case you don't know, I'm currently in Sweden, and getting ready to cross the Baltic Sea tomorrow night for Worldcon in Helsinki, Finland later this week!
Before I share with you some decent photos of cool stuff we've seen so far, let me first share with you my official Worldcon schedule, which includes one panel this year, on one of my favorite topics of all time:
Saturday 12 August at 11:00 AM: "Legacy of Buffy" (203a)
The Buffy the Vampire Slayer television show premiered 20 years ago in 1997 and brought with it an unusual mix of supernatural horror, comedy, and interesting characters. Supernatural elements are very commonplace in television these days, but what is the real legacy of Buffy and the Scooby Gang?
Hey. I'm excited about this panel, ya'll. If there's one thing I love more than BtVS, it's nothing, and you can take that to the bank. (?) But really, though, I like the show a lot, and I think all of us on the panel will have a lot to say about the legacy this program left behind, particularly in relation to what many are now calling the "golden age" of television we're experiencing right now.
Other than that, I'll just be hanging around the convention center, talking to folks, and probably resting up a bit from our rigorous travels around Scandinavia! Speaking of which, here's a teaser photo for some more images to come, that I'll share in a later dedicated post:
