First, I survived Westercon, and had good turnouts for both talks. Happily met a number of people interested in the Philip K. Dick Conference–and received an invitation to come talk about it with the Orange County Science Fiction Club in the months before the Conference. All good!
Second, the Philip K. Dick Conference received money in the form of a grant from the College of Humanities that will help a good deal. We’re grateful for institutional support, and these funds will help us meet expenses and continue to expand our plans in the coming months. Stay tuned!
