There are three conventions this year I hope to attend. I’ll be at one of them at least, hopefully all of them, but it will depend on finances.
The first is Marcon, May 27-29, in Columbus, Ohio. Marcon is a science fiction and fantasy convention that’s well known for its outrageous parties and surprisingly big name guests for a little con in the Midwest. This year both F. Paul Wilson and Harry Turtledove will be in attendance and I hope to meet both.
The second convention is Context, August 26-28, also in Columbus. This is a more writing focused con with L. E. Modesitt, Jr. as the guest of honor. I’m not particularly familiar with the con, and I hope to rectify that.
The final convention, the one I most hope to attend, is DragonCon, September 2-5, in Atlanta, Georgia. I’ve been to D*C many times in the past and I really hope to get back down there this year. It’s expensive, but soooooo worth it.
I won’t be a guest at any of these cons; I’m not a famous writer (yet!) and my pathetic little stories are just getting started. However, I will be enjoying every con I can make it to, and I hope to post lots of photos and thoughts from each.
