John will arrive in Japan the first day of the Worldcon and return to Los Angeles 10 days later.
Thanks go to John's friends and supporters on both sides of the Pacific Ocean.
Donations, an online auction, and an auction during Corflu Quire, raised more than $2,200. In addition, John's airplane ticket was purchased with donated air miles.
John's post-Worldcon goal is to spend as much time as possible with local fans.
