Tom Shippey, Douglas Anderson, and Ted Nasmith convention appearances
- I didn't make notes when I saw their names come up the other day, and
now that I'm at work I have to keep my Web surfing to a minimum.
However, Tom Shippey is listed as a guest for Dragoncon 2002:
Douglas Anderson is also, I believe, going to be there (or possibly
at another large convention -- I cannot check right now and will
probably forget to do so when I get home).
Dragoncon will be held the weekend of August 29 - September 2 in
Atlanta, GA. It's the largest fan-run science fiction and fantasy
convention in North America.
The Tolkien and Middle-earth track is now under the direction of
Jincey Chambless, who assisted me for the first two years.
I have not been planning to attend Dragoncon this year, but I've been
given some recent consideration to the idea.
I do plan to visit Crescent City Con in Metaire/New Orleans. Ted
Nasmith will be there (and Mercedes Lackey will be making a rare
appearance, too). Crescent City Con will be held the weekend of
August 9 - 11.
You can learn more about Crescent Con at their Web site:
Some of their scheduled guests will not be there, but it's closer to
where I live than Atlanta, and I've been to Dragoncon. :)
