  1. Congratulations to the Seattle mermaid who appeared at Discon’s Masquerade!

  2. Hurrah! Went to Seattle around New Year’s in 2022 and it was wonderful, so excited to go back. The Museum of Pop Culture has the SFF Hall of Fame and a great Fantasy Literature exhibit that would be lovely to revisit with fellow fans.

  3. It is worth going to the Museum of Pop Culture just to see how much of the World’s Fair infrastructure remains. I went to the Fair as a child. Now, I just hope my voting token actually worked.

  4. Looking at the con hotel rates, I probably won’t be able to attend, unless I commute in from SeaTac.

  5. Commuting in from SeaTac is entirely reasonable to do; the light rail stops 5 blocks away from the venue, and is a pretty nice way to go.

  7. @Chris R: 5 blocks is just doable (for me–can’t speak for others), if the weather’s right.

  9. Congratulations to Seattle WorldCon 2025! I haven’t been to Seattle since 1977. I dare say it has changed a bit since I was there as a young Canadian Forces officer candidate enjoying the Seattle Seafair weekend. I will see how my business prospers and may plan a visit during the WorldCon. I am attending Glasgow 2024 on August 8-12, 2024.
