John Scalzi finally realizes that the science fiction community has passed him by.
Just saw my WorldCon schedule.
Single panel and a kaffeeklatsch.
They don’t respect Asimov, Clarke, and Heinlein anymore. They’re certainly not going to take long to forget about a mediocre, middle-aged white male.
UPDATE: If you can’t win, pretend not to have been playing the game.
It’s a trend. Also, after noting last night I’d be happy to give up my panel slot, this morning I went ahead and withdrew from programming entirely, to open up slots for folks previously excluded from programming, including other Hugo finalists.
Such magnanimity! It almost brings a single tear to my eye.
