Guess who’s coming for Szechuan sauce? Russian author Sergey Lukyanenko dropped a Rick and Morty reference at the end of his blog post announcing that the Chengdu Worldcon committee is bringing him to China in December.
At the beginning of December, I plan to be in Chengdu, Beijing and Shanghai at the kind invitation of the Organizing Committee of the World Science Fiction Convention in Chengdu and the publishing house “Eight Light Minutes”….
A guest of honor who was conspicuously absent from the Chengdu Worldcon, will Lukyanenko still be coming as a guest of the committee? Why not. It was probably arranged this way. After all his toxic utterances about the Russian invasion of Ukraine, his presence at the Worldcon could have become a distraction.
P.S. Of course, I’ll try Szechuan sauce.
