After hitting a 23-year low last week, the British pound has recovered some ground. Still, writes Andrew Porter, Monday’s $1.42 exchange rate is “far from the heady days a few months ago when the exchange rate was $2.04 to the pound. I know one person who has decided not to attend the Montreal worldcon because of the cost.”
Are British fans are finding it more of a struggle to attend North American cons this year?
Porter sighs, “I wish now I hadn’t engaged in my own little bit of currency manipulation, taking £300 home with me from my UK trip in October 2007.”
