The July 1990 issue lists me as the GoH at Inconjunction 10, June 29-July 1 of this year. I informed the Indianapolis IN commitee over nine months ago that I could not attend. Apparently, the committee continued to advertise that I would be there.
The same issue of Locus advertises that I will be a guest of the XXth Century International Convention on April 3-6, 1991, in France. While I would be pleased to accept an invitation to this convention, I have received no invitation as of today. In fact, I was surprised when I read the notice in Locus.
Is a new category coming into sf? That of ghost guests?
