A Dublin Worldcon

The next worldcon is going to be in Dublin (August 15-19, 2019).

Is it just me, or does this sound like the coolest literary vacation ever? You get all of the worldcon stuff, so you get to see cool science fiction authors, but you also are in Dublin, so you get to visit James Joyce's haunts, etc.

I doubt I can afford to go, but if I win the lottery, I'm going to go and take some of you guys with me.

2020 worldcon is New Zealand, which also looks out of reach. 2021 may be Washington, D.C., which looks doable.

Ha! This looks like a blast! I recently just told Eric Wagner of my plans to visit Ireland soon in hopes he would share a few of the spots Bob recommended to him before his journey to Ireland. And now this! Oh sweet Goddess Eris, may the winds of Chaos blow me to Romantic Ireland!

I love Dublin, and I love Worldcons. The D.C. one sounds cool too (my hometown). I enjoyed the Worldcon in 1983 in Baltimore, although RAW had tilted me away from pure sf fandom by then. I felt like a real sf fan at the 78 and 81 Worldcons. I felt a bit more like an outsider at the 93 Worldcon.
