2009 Appearance Schedule

A few people expressed their dismay that they had no idea I was going to Penguicon, and I gave them all the same answer: I was incognito. I’ve been attending conventions for about 15 years now, and only in the last few have I been invited as a guest. Sometimes, I still like going to cons just to be a fan. Not having to be on a panel schedule is a bit of a luxury, really. And I don’t mind paying for a badge — I support small, local conventions like I support my local independent bookstores. I see value in spending money on things I want to stay around. (Amazing, right?)

With all that in mind, here’s a list of the "working" conventions I’ve planned for this year:

    What no worldcon?

    What was your first SF con and why did you go?

  16. admin Says:

    No money, no Worldcon. Plus, this justifies me saving up for Australia.

    My very first convention was Dragon*Con, back in 1996. I was a bookseller at a Waldenbooks in South Carolina. Back in those days, all the publishers would come and have a retail exhibitors day on Thursday night. My boss was a true-blue SF geek and best friends with all the editors from Del Rey. It was awesome.

    To this day, I think of Dragon*Con (and Hypericon in Nashville) as my “hometown” cons.

  17. jeffreyab Says:

    If I lived in Nashville those would be my home cons too.

    I know what you mean about worldcon expenses this is my first since 2003 which was also a Canadian city and in my equivalence of Atlanta.
