Yes, that’s the correct date: 2013.
In 2 years, The World Science Fiction Convention (AKA WorldCon) will be back in San Antonio. This will be in my backyard as its only 300 miles away.
Unlike a lot of conventions or even a lot of events that call themselves ‘World’, WorldCon is a traveling act. Just like the Olympics, the host city changes every time. Each year, there are cities bidding to be the host city for the convention. The bidders are usually a small group of hard core fans that run a local convention and feel the need to try their hand at the big time.
