Overheard at The World Fantasy Convention

This is a feature that appears periodically, as we attend conventions and overhear things.  The tradition of keeping track of anonymous overheard bits and bobs started for us at the 2002 ConJose in San Jose, where trying (or trying not to) fill in the blanks on overheard conversations made us laugh so much that we made it a tradition.  However, we didn't overhear much that was both memorable _and_ repeatable in polite company at the World Fantasy Convention this year in Austin!

"I don't care how many books he's written -- if he won't sign these he's dead to me."

"And of course a White Russian is a solid, blue-collar workingman's drink."

"Riding down the elevator, three girls asked me what convention I was part of.  When I said, 'The World Fantasy Convention,' one girl excitedly asked 'Does that mean there are porn stars here?!!'"
