Worldcon are great. I am heartbroken I will not be attended this one.
That said, smaller con have a flavor and advantage all their own. IT was at a smaller con that I sat in the bar for 90 minutes with Gregory Benford talking writing.
If you live in SoCaL you might wanna check out LosCon (Los Angeles) in November, Conjecture (San Diego) in October. In NorCal there's Baycon and a bunch of other smaller and mid-sized cons to attend.
