Ok, I admit, this is pretty much based on the list of conventions I plan on attending. There's tons out there, though not too many around here. I didn't include the anime ones, basically because I don't watch it and don't know what's going on. Feel free to add on to the list (which I will update with all the web links eventually)! Darkover - Nov. 29- Dec. 1, Timonium, MD darkovercon.com EveCon - Dec. 12/27-29, Reston, VA Farpoint - Feb. 14-16, Hunt Valley, MD I-Con - March 28-30, somewhere on Long Island iconsf.org Balticon - May 23-26, Baltimore, MD balticon.org Shore Leave - July 11-13, Hunt Valley, MD shore-leave.com CastleCon - July or August in Reston, date/location still TBD DragonCon - Aug 29 - Sep 1, Altanta dragoncon.org These run the gamut from big time media cons (DragonCon, Shore Leave) to literary cons (Balticon) to fan run cons (Evecon). I focused on the local conventions because, if one wants, one can drive home at night. (experience has taught me I rarely want to) Long Island is not close, but I added I-Con because we had fun last year, and because I know the Long Island Fan Force has a fan table arranged. I have it on good authority we can put fliers out for the Galactic Senate. (this would be the same authority who volunteered my services at their table) DragonCon is even farther, but it is the Grand Poobah of conventions, well worth seeing at least once in one's life.
