Anywhere-but-Chicago?

They've had some slick bids -- doesn't mean they'll run a slick con. There is a certain amount of con-running fatigue that can happen when you do those worldcon things too often.

I'm inclined towards Denver, too.

The race I'm most interested in, though, is Montreal vs KC. Cause, it would be real cool to have a Worldcon a 2-hour drive away. But, I'm unlikely to make it to the vote for this one, as Japan is just too far, and too expensive, for me.

You don't have to go Japan to vote for the 2009 worldcon. You need to have a supporting membership in the convention, and to pay the voting fee (which will automatically turn into a supporting membership for whichever convention wins), but you can vote by mail or maybe online.

Yeah, I know. foms has been pushing me to do so for a while. But, it is such a bother.

Which is why I'm pretty sure KC is going to win. Most people who don't go to Japan aren't going to bother to vote, and the hardcore worldcon regulars who go to Japan are all firmly behind KC, I think.
