Rhea, CC, Robert, Eileen, Brenda, and Jen all have readings and panels throughout the weekend (and Jen will be picking up swords as usual at the Academie Duello demo on Saturday evening), so be sure look up their schedules and track them down.
And of course visit our table at any time throughout the weekend. Admission to the vendors’ room is free and we’d love to see you there!
Hot off the presses! Issue 8 will be available at VCON, the Vancouver Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention, this weekend October 2-4.
Come and pick your copy up from Jen or Sue in the Vendor Hall … and get it signed by at least three of the authors. You’ll also be able to hear dvsduncan read from his steampunk story set in New Westminster, ‘Cropper’s Ball’ on the Friday evening multi-book launch.
While you’re at it track down Issue 1 and 5 cover artist Melissa Mary Duncan in the Artists’ Hall, hear Issue 5 feature author Eileen Kernaghan read from her captivating books, and listen to Issue 1 feature author CC Humphreys talk about writing the past.
We haven’t heard whether feature author JJ Lee will be able to attend, but keep your eyes out in case you spot him … or perhaps the Man in the Long Black Coat!
See you there!
