It seems that the summer of 2010 has sneaked away under cover of daylight (burning hot, 100-degree daylight) and it’s once again time for FenCon.
FenCon is “A Fan-Operated Science Fiction and Fantasy Literary and Filk Convention in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area” with lots of cool guests including myself and Angeline Hawkes (she much cooler than me), plus panels, dealers, fans, and beer. This is the convention’s seventh year, with Guest of Honor Spider Robinson and the inimitable Joe R. Lansdale serving as this year’s Toastmaster.
Angeline and I will have an author’s table outside the dealer’s room, on the balcony under the atrium. If you make it out, please stop by and say hello.
My schedule for the weekend looks like this:
SATURDAY 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM Addison Lecture Hall
