Demented Thought

On a list that shall not be named, someone make a typo about buying a membership to Loncon 4 shortly after LoneStarCon 3, to which someone else replied that that should be impossible, since the Worldcon after LoneStarCon 3 is Loncon 3.

However, my demented and perhaps paranoid mind comes up with a scenario – a highly unlikely scenario – where this could be the case: None of the three bidders for the 2015 Worldcon score higher than “None of the Above,” thus forcing the decision to the business meeting who takes the highly unusual step of appointing the committee of Loncon 3 to run two consecutive Worldcons, and they determine that they can get facilities in London, thus Loncon 4 is the Worldcon immediately after Loncon 3.

Of course if I were really paranoid, my fear would be that after the decision was sent to the business meeting, I got a call (or if we somehow manage to get the resources to make it to LoneStarCon 3 without draining the resources needed for Loncon 3 – am in person to witness) that the decision of the board meeting was to tack the 2015 Worldcon onto the existing (presuming we win) 2015 Westercon in San Diego.
