VCON is ONE MONTH AWAY!

As previously announced in this Journal:

VCON IS COMING SOON!

VCON 35 is taking place at the The Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel in Richmond BC on October 1-3.

This year's theme:

Steampunk: from Alchemy to Zeppelins
The Art, Science and Fashion of Wild Invention



WHY YOU SHOULD COME TO VCON!!! WE HAVE...

**Fabulous Writer GoH, Cherie Priest**

Cherie Priest is the author of seven novels, including the steampunk pulp adventure Boneshaker (nominated for a Nebula award, winner of the PNBA award) and the Blooker-award winning Four and Twenty Blackbirds — as well as Fathom, Wings to the Kingdom, and the Endeavour award nominated Not Flesh Nor Feathers from Tor.


**Amazing Music GoH, Heather Dale**

We are privileged to host the lovely and talented Heather Dale this year! Heather plays a wide variety of folk instruments, including piano, bodhran drum, mountain & hammered dulcimers, bowed psaltery, recorders & tin whistles. In 2009, Heather and her partner, Ben Deschamps, received the Pegasus Award for Best Performer.

**Excellent Actor guest, David Nykl**

The fantastic actor who brought us Radek Zelenka for 5 seasons on Stargate: Atlantis is going to be in attendance, along with some other folks from Provost Pictures, to discuss the movie The Beast of Bottomless Lake. Shot in BC, the movie follows Dr. Morgan (Nykl) as he investigates the existence of Ogopogo.

**I should state that I have no idea how long Mr. Nykl plans to be at the con, just that he has agreed to come for the movie discussion panel. **

Also: Panels! Concerts! Art Show! Dealer's Room! Gaming! Costuming! Kidcon!

You can Register online now!


Note: The hotel will hold the room block until September 15th, so be sure to book your stay before then if you want to take advantage of these great rates! Online booking is available through the Vancouver Airport Marriott's web site. To obtain VCON rates, enter the group code WSFWSFA.

Oooh! That's exciting that David Nykl is going to be there. William plans to take the stargate over there, so maybe we can get him to pose in front of it.

I love VCON! I love Vancouver. I haven't been for way too long, because the 6 hour drive (each way) is hard. This may be the kick in the pants that gets me back there.

Portland, right? I can totally grok that. I love Portland and I have some wonderful friends there, but man! It's a frickin' LONG DRIVE!

I hope you decide to come out!

Sorry, but I'll be at Con-Cept in Montreal that same weekend. I might add that it's a lot easier for me to reach Montreal than Vancouver. [Talk about long drives. :-/]

Maybe next year ...

I think I'll definitely try to be there. You are one of the organizers right? or am I mistaken and thinking things again?
