after we'll be away, and there is just no way I will be able to go anywhere.
Maureen Thum's paper on female power in Tolkien sounds most interesting to
me at this point. It is neat to see the agenda. Thanks so much !
Funny, I guess I had rather the wrong idea of what "Bridges" would inspire
in presenters. I thought there would be more on, how can I put this? the
process of being taken out of the quotidian, or illumination thereof ...
or connections of other sorts.
Now, if only I could have a virtual experience of the dealer's room. A
friend recently brought me back papers and advertising postcards and things
from Origins '04. I WILL get to a good con in the next 24 months...

- Concerning the Dealer's Room. Well, may be it's a good thing you aren't
coming to this year's Mythcon. The Michigan League won't let us have
one, so there won't be much there. We will have the papers presenters
give us, and the MythSoc Tables with our books and mathoms. But not much
Next year is in England (see the British Tolkien Society for that one).
The year after that looks like it may be in Seattle Washington (watch
www.mythsoc.org for further information).
We do tend to have several dealers who will travel to where ever we are
to be in the MythCon Dealer's Room. Hopefully you can make it to a
Mythcon that has a good dealer's room in the next few years!

the guest(s) of honor. David and I asked Janet (papers coordinator) if
anyone was writing papers on Gaiman's Sandman. At the time, no one had
submitted a proposal, so we submitted abstracts. Gaiman spent so long on
the series and it's what really made him famous. It seemed a shame for
there not to be papers on the guest of honor's landmark. I see there are
one or two other Gaiman papers, so that's good.
And people may write on whatever interests them. With Buffy ending last
year, I thought that was a good time to do a Buffy paper. Now I'm watching
DVDs of Babylon 5, and I see how that could be a Mythcon paper, too.
(Although I probably won't. I don't plan on going to Birmingham next year
and it wouldn't be appropriate for that anyway.) At the San Diego Mythcon,
there was a paper on Star Wars.
