Tickets purchased, the wife and I will definitely be attending NY Comic Con on Saturday October 12.
Going to the EMS in October to meet Paul Darrow (Kerr Avon from Blakes 7) and then a Trekkie con with all the captains from every Star Trek series ever done from Kirk to Archer.
Austin Wizard World comic con
Oct 26-28. Will be in Artist Alley for this one - table #2336. Best perk is walking past all the lines waiting to get in (grin). Will be in full steam punk regalia.
OOOH, want a picture, please, Kerry!
You bet! Setup is this afternoon. Tomorrow I get to dress out for the first day.
I'll be attending the London Super Comicon at the end of February. Carlos Ezquerra and John Wagner, best known for creating Judge Dredd and Johnny Alpha from 2000AD will be there so I'll be sporting a new and improved Johnny Alpha costume.
There's a Middle Earth weekend going on in Birmingham (UK) in May, which I might go along to. Anyone else thinking of going? No idea what it would be like.
Off to World Fantasycon in Brighton, tomorrow. (Jumps, clicks heels and punches the air!)
I'll be a the Can-Con call invention in Ottawa Canada on October 3-5. Any one else going?
No, but I wish I was.
I haven't been to a SF/Fantasy convention is a while. I will have to remedy that!
Haven't been to a whole con since 2006 except one day at world con when it was in Montreal. really looking forward to this.
I'm all signed up for Sasquan, the 2015 WorldCon in Spokane, WA. I hope some of my old SFFWorld friends will be there too!
Anyone for BEA 2015? May 27 – Friday, May 29, 2015 at Javits Center New York City, NY.

I recently moved to Calgary Alberta and just found out there is a Reader/Writer con in town in August called When Worlds Collide. It includes workshops, editing sessions, and pitch sessions. It sounds really interesting. I am going to sign up for sure. FYI memberships are full weekend and there is a membership cap. As of this AM there are 52 left.
Does anyone know of any conventions in the Olympia/ Seattle/ Portland area? Thanks!
world con 2015 is in Spokan WA, http://sasquan.org/
For the When Words Collide Festival in Calgary Alberta. I just signed up for a 4-hour workshop on plot with Daniel Abraham. Half of the writing duo that makes up James S. A. Corey authors of the Expanse series. They offer 4 pre-festival workshops. more info is here: http://www.whenwordscollide.org/workshops.php
I'm seeing all these posts on FB of the San Francisco ComicCon and I'm SO JEALOUS! It makes the one here in May in Minneapolis look so lame.
Heading to the Speculative Fiction South East writers conference next weekend in Orlando Florida. The conference is hosted by a club called The Dirty Little Bookers, who promote indie and self published horror, sci fi, and fantasy, and it looks like it's going to be a carnival of craziness. There is a steampunk band performing at the hotel the first night, a sci fi themed rave the next night, and I would just like to state I'll be going to neither. I'll be too busy writing in my hotel room. But some big names like Orson Scott Card, Peter V Brett, Kelly Armstrong, and Catherine M Valentine. I'm excited. I'm hoping to meet some interesting people and make some solid connections for writing stuff in the future.
That sounds like fun, Victor! Hope you have a great time,
