Mythcon 40 ...tick ...tick ...tick
- NO, it is NOT Captain Hook's alligator coming back around for another tasty hand - it's TIME running out to preregister & arrange room and board packages (and UCLA parking, I think ...Sarah?) for MYTHCON 40 at UCLA, De Neve Plaza in Los Angeles (basically Westwood).
The LAST DAY for prereg & room/board is JULY 6th.
Please note the tentative schedule is now up at the website:
Fantasy author & artist James A. Owen! Inklings scholar Diana Pavlac Glyer! Mythies large and small!
Come join the fun... be there or be polyhedronic!
If you've never read "What is Mythcon?" on the website, please do take a gander <http://www.mythsoc.org/mythcon/about/> (includes a link to the history of the Not Ready for Mythcon Players); also Neil Gaiman's quick blog-post on his experience in 2004
<http://journal.neilgaiman.com/2004/08/lewis-and-clarke-not-to-mention-snuff.asp\> and his promised & reconstructed GOH speech
<http://www.mythsoc.org/mythcon/35/speech/>. In fact, I invite you to wander through the Mythsoc website conference history pages
<http://www.mythsoc.org/mythcon/history/> and delight at gems like Lee Speth's Mythcon 26 con report <http://www.mythsoc.org/mythcon/26/report/>
James A. Owen <http://www.heretherebedragons.net/?page_id=7> Fantasy author & artist
Diana Pavlac Glyer <http://www.theplaceofthelion.com/> Inklings scholar & author
We will also enjoy the presence of Mythopoeic Society founder Glen GoodKnight and fantasy author Tim Powers
