What Some People Will Believe

Cheryl reports on an odd Worldcon rumor making the rounds at World Fantasy Con. Her explanation has the right of it, and I've added a comment of my own about what's happened. I think there's something in many people who want to see a Worldcon disaster, because Other People's Disasters are fun to watch.

Nonetheless, I'm sure there will be a lot of gripes from people whose only Worldcon experience has been places like Anaheim. The hotel and facility situation there is such that if we ever wanted to grow Worldcon to Dragon*Con-size (which would require it to be held in the same place annually with the same organization running it, probably destroying much of the current charm and driving off most of the current regular attendees), Anaheim is at the top of my short list of sites.
