I’ll be spending this weekend at one of the two conventions that I consider to be “home” for me. Over the last decade, ConFusion has increasingly become a place to be for authors of sci-fi and fantasy–so while there is plenty more going on here this weekend, if you are into genre fiction, you owe it to yourself to come visit the more than 50 authors that will be milling about in a much more relaxed, personal atmosphere than you’d expect.
If you had been here last night, you could have joined Alaya Dawn Johnson, John Scalzi, Cheri Priest, Wes Chu, Cameron McClure, and tons more for dinner and karaoke. Who knows what will happen tonight, when the list of authors in attendance is nearly 10% of the con attendance!
If you’re more into events, come see the costumes at the masquerade, the considerable slate of panels and talks, tour a dozen room parties Friday and Saturday nights, or socialize in the GIANT hospitality suite over Cylithria’s always amazing selection of beers and ciders…all free with the cost of admission.
If any (or all) of this sounds interesting, come out to the Novi Sheraton this weekend! $60 for adults ($45 for kids) gets you the whole weekend. I’ll see you there.
