This morning San Francisco Science Fiction Conventions, Inc. (SFSFC) announced that should the San Jose in 2018 bid for the 76th World Science Fiction Convention succeed, I will be the convention chair.

You can read the complete press release on the SFSFC website.

I'm thrilled, honored, and (appropriately) mildly terrified to have been appointed.

There have been lots of congratulatory notes and (more importantly!) offers of help flying in already, which is quite gratifying.

To avoid the curse of social media scrolling your offer away, if you want to reach me at my "official" address, it's kevin.roche@sjin2018.org.

Congratulations. Or is that "my sympathy?" Truly, though, you'll be awesome.

I am doing my best to get the funds together to pre-support, and I will certainly be voting!

Congratulations & sympathy both!

IMHO you are worthy, and you should be fine, surrounded as you are by others who have performed this role, or something like it, well.

Personally, I would prefer 2018 to be in NOLA, and plan to vote that way, but am pre-supporting both bids at the same level.

In the very likely chance San Jose is the winning bid, I will help in any way I can.

Good luck!
