Next Tuesday is the last day before prices go up. A look at the current membership at Interaction's website reveals that no new Israelis have signed up since the five who registered months ago. Next Wednesday, prices go up by $25. Interaction has an installment plan, so that if you register in the next six days, you pay $45 now, followed by two quarterly payments of $75 and $50.
I wouldn't be harping on about this if it weren't for the fact that several Israeli fans have said they were planning to go. Now is the time to register people. If you need an incentive, I'll mention that amongst the regsitered, one can find the following attending members: David Brin, George RR Martin, Terry Pratchett, Robin Hobb, Larry Niven, Connie Willis, Michael Swanwick, Alastair Reynolds, CJ Cherryh… You can check the current membership list and see if your favorite author is attending. And, of course, more will join. Most of the Hugo noms usually attend, as well.
It should be a great worldcon, and it'll be several years before a worldcon is this close to Israel. So if you're free next August, why not go?
