Worldcon Membership for sale [Feb. 5th, 2007|02:36 pm]
Douglas Spencer
It looks like I have a Worldcon membership unexpectedly for sale. Give me a shout if you want to buy it -- I haven't looked at what the market for second-hand memberships looks like at the moment, and I haven't looked at the mechanics of transferring it, but it's available if you make me an offer.

Don't worry -- plans change, it's not a problem.

They're all intact. We'd have to find out how to transfer them.

So does this mean you're not going, then? :-(
In the unlikely chance that I make it, I'll miss having you there.

It seems unlikely. :-( See my comment to Flick below.

Going to Worldcon will mean flights and hotel, and even having got the membership already it would cost me as much as about three other conventions.

I'm already going to Redemption, Contemplation, Confounding Tales, Year of the Teledu, Recombination and Novacon, and I'll be pushing my luck doing all six unless I suddenly get an unexpected load of extra paying work. I'm not going to be able to manage the Japanese Worldcon too.

I'd decided to drop Worldcon in late October not long after this post. I sold the membership at Novacon but we didn't tie up the loose ends and the buyer's plans have had to change, so I'm selling once more.
