I considered declining the invitation. It was too weird, too expensive, too far, too dangerous, too weird. Way too weird. An invitation like that would never come again. I’d regret it if I
didn’t go. It lay on our kitchen table for three weeks while I argued out the pros and cons with Mabel. She listened, made suggestions; I countered her, then argued her part, then made both arguments, then reversed them again.

“How do I know it’s not a hoax?” I asked, studying the list of backing organizations for the twentieth time. “The website looks legit, but how could it not be a hoax?”

“Look at it this way,” Mabel said. “Either you’ll be part of a ground-breaking event in human history, or a groundbreaking psych experiment. Someone benefits either way. And you’ve never
been to eastern Canada, so at least you get to see someplace new even if you just end up standing in a field somewhere looking silly.”

She always had a way of making an adventure out of things that would otherwise stress me out. Four months later, I flew to Nova Scotia, took a bus to a seaside town too small for a dot on a
map, boarded a ferry to Secord Island, and stepped through the waiting portal into an alternate-reality resort hotel lobby swarming with Sarah Pinskers. At least two hundred of us by my estimation, with more straggling in.

I always lock the door when I creep by daylight.

I voted for this one for the Hugo, as it was the novella on the list that most embodied what I think of with the Hugos. Cozy mystery set at a multi-verse convention. Lost opportunity novels showing up (and our protagonist not picking up Parable of the Trickster!) Nebula as a murder weapon! I imagine every author that has hefted that thing has considered how much force it would take to crush a skull with it. So good.

How many parts does this one have? I like to listen to multi-part stories in one go...

(sure, the narrator might say how many parts it is in the intro, but I can't switch between podcasts once they're on my player, so that would be difficult)

I believe that Divya said in this week's episode that next week's (part 4) would be the conclusion.

"People commonly use the word 'procrastination' to describe what they do on the Internet. It seems to me too mild to describe what's happening as merely not-doing-work. We don't call it procrastination when someone gets drunk instead of working." - Paul Graham
