FenCon V is rapidly approaching. FenCon V runs October 3-5, 2008 in Dallas, TX. It is the largest fan-run, literary Science Fiction convention in the state. It supports authors, artists, musicians, and fans of all areas of SF - including fantasy and horror.
FenCon has made a name for itself in SF literary fandom for boldness in approaching top names in the industry for their Guests of Honor, toastmasters, and to lead their writer's workshop. They have even talked at least one artist out of convention retirement to participate, they welcome Real Musgrave as FenCon V's Artist Guest of Honor.
With a strong focus on literary endeavors, FenCon supports all avenues of Science Fiction. They sponsor a short story contest, put together a short collection each year with new and reprint stories, articles, or lyrics by not only the current year's Guests of Honor but also a stellar selection of regional panelists.
FenCon, not only throws one mean party of a convention, the organizers are thoroughly involved with fandom in the region. They support the other area conventions as much as their own. Which is why FenCon is not only in the Heart of Texas but in the hearts of area fandom.
FenCon V's Guest of Honor roster includes: Greg Benford, Real Musgrave, Doris Egan, Jay Lake, The Weird Sisters, and Howard Waldrop. If you are in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, please come support a fabulous convention and fandom at the Addison Crowne Plaza on Midway road. Registration opens Friday, October 3 at 11 AM.
