    Orycon is the big Portland con that happens every year. Next one is not until November, however.

    Yeah, but RoseCon needs a replacement for the late spring / early summer window here. It's March...putting off a con until November just blows.

    • Michael A. Stackpole (Writer) – Mike Stackpole is considered one of the foremost authors in the Star Wars universe, having penned over a dozen books including the popular Rogue Squadron series and I, Jedi.

    Question Sdcc

    I was thinking about hitting the San Diego Comic-Con. I checked out the website and looks like it will be pretty good. Does anyone have any info on any guests that will be appearing that hasn't been announced yet? I also heard a band might be playing the convention. Has anyone heard about this?

    OK! This is NOT spam, it is an honest offer!!!

    Who is attending Denvention that needs a Hotel Room off premises Inexpensive?
    http://www.denvention3.org/

    I can't attend due to poor finances! I do have a reservation off premises for the Best Western down the street from the Convention Center! The cost is $89.00 a night weekdays and weekends!!! The res goes from Tuesday August 5th, to tuesday August 12th! The total is $723.45 the room has two (2) Queen Beds, and is a Non-Smoking Room. If you want and need a room at least 1/3-1/2 cheaper than most of the Hotels are presently asking, then just post here and you can have the room, since I cannot attend. You will not be paying me, and you must change the reservation to your own name. I will remove mine when you confirm here that you want it!

    I will call the Hotel to let them know you are taking the room in advance so there is no confusion!


    I made this reservation almost a year ago and have a confirmation letter to the effect that these prices are set...I can mail it to you as well!!!

    Have Fun! Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    Hugs

    The secret's out, the schedule's announced (http://www.fantasycon.org.uk/program.html) , and I guess that means that I can now say that I will be greatly honoured to interview (with excruciatingly difficult questions) Mr James Barclay esq. at FantasyCon 2008 as he will be Guest of Honour on the 20th September.

    I have been working on deviously fiendish questions for a while now, BUT I realise that some people may have questions they week to seek the answer for.

    So: bearing in mind that it may not get asked (or I may have it in the list already!), and also that I don't want James to know the questions (yet), if you would like to send me a PM message with your requests and I'll see what I can do.

    Foolscap will be held in Redmond, WA next weekend, for any in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S.

    I will be there, doing a book reading and with art on display in the artshow. I'll also be on several panels during the course of the weekend.

    I met and had a few words with Alan Moore at Newcon - gave him a copy of Murky Depths. It was a very friendly convention.

    Next convention I'm at will be Hi-Ex in Inverness on 14-15 February (weather permitting).

    Rustycon is a medium-sized SF/F convention, coming up this weekend in the Seattle area. I will be there, mostly on Saturday, doing panels and also a reading from my forthcoming book, The Pool of Shikama (due out in February). I will also have my artwork on display in the art show. Any SFFWorld folks are most welcome - I'd love to meet any of you who are in the area and would like to stop by.
