We are are profoundly sorry for the misgendered biography for Bogi Takács that was released in today's early program information.
It was an dreadful mistake and I apologize on behalf of all my staff.
I am trying to find out exactly where our editing process failed, to ensure it does not happen again.
The Number One Question we've been asked since spring is "When will room reservations open?"
We have just sent out an email to all registered members informing them that hotel reservations for members open tomorrow, Nov 22, at 1PM PST.
Reservation information will be posted publicly here on the website at a later date, to ensure members get first crack at the hotels.
(Actually, we sent out 3, because yours truly typoed both the date and time, setting it two weeks in the past. Clearly I was undercaffeinated.)
And yes, we are aware there is a 4th typo in the email, our hotel information page is https://www.worldcon76.org/travel-lodging/hotels (that typo was inserted by the editor interface, not me)
Please spread the word!
Today I had the great pleasure of announcing two more Guests of Honor for Worldcon 76 in San Jose.
At the "Future Worldcons" panel today at Worldcon 75 in Helsinki, I revealed that artist John Picacio and musician Frank Hayes have been added to our roster of honored guests. We're excited and thrilled that they will be joining us next August!
