Wow. This was one amazing con. So many cool people, too many good panels, lots of good parties. The con staff & volunteers ran this like a well oiled machine. This is definitely one of our "can't miss" cons.
We'll be in Troy Michigan for Penguicon! This is a very unique convention, because not only is it about sci-fi/fantasy (Author Guest of Honor is Tamora Pierce) but it's also an Open Source/Linux con(with guests Jono Bacon & Benjamin Mako Hill). There are lots of nifty guests & great programming, like Jennie Breeden (the Devil's Panties) and Rob Balder (Partially Clips, GiTPG) on the webcomics panels as well as the FuMP (featuring Luke Ski and Wormquartet) in the music programming. We'll be in the dealer room during the day, but out in the evening enjoying the convention programming. Be sure to come by on Friday to get your "Chocolate Prayer" t-shirt before the chocolate ritual on Friday night!
We're working on filling in our schedule for the rest of the year. So, if your nearby con isn't listed in our confirmed shows, and you'd like to see us there, let us know! We're always looking for new places to go, and friends to meet.
We had so much fun! Great guests, authors, artists and fen. Con committee & staff would ran the whole con seamlessly (as far as I could tell). I honestly started bugging the dealer room head about next year on Saturday afternoon, because this is a con I don't want to miss. We'll be there next year, and so should you.
