    Anyone know if there are going to be any Star Wars or Star Trek (or just sci-fi in general, for that matter) Conventions in Utah anytime soon?

    Jace, as for sci fi conventions, ENDERCON will be held in Orem at UVSC in july 2002. It's not general sci-fi, but it's still cool. If you've never read Ender's Game, I highly recommend it.

    I won't be here for that. I'm not all that interested in Role Playing, anyway. Thanks for the info anyway, Andakin.

    It's not role playing at all. It's simply the best science fiction universe ever created.

    Ender's Game and the subsequent series, by Orson Scott Card, is truly awesome. The premise is "and a child shall lead them." At times, the transition between personas as a child and a military genius is purely eerie.

    But what's up with the delays on shadow puppets? And the lack of the MOVIE! We've been promised it for years!

    Greetings Everyone,

    Don't forget Conduit, a Science Fiction writers convention that is held every year in Salt Lake City for the last eleven years. The next scheduled event for Conduit will be over Memorial Day Weekend, May 24-26, 2002. The main theme will be Lord of the Rings. Conduit does hold a "Conduit Masquerade" costuming event. However, most Star Wars Fans will be occupied that weekend. ;) Hint-Hint

    BYU campus hosts "Life, The Universe, and Everything" every year. Like Conduit, it's sister con, LTUE is a Science Fiction Writing convention. In 1999, this convention featured Kevin J. Anderson as a guest speaker, who has written several Star Wars Novels. The next LTUE(#20!) will be held on February 21-23, 2002, and is FREE to the public.

    The Utah Costumer's guild has made two separate bids to host Costume-Con in 2003 and 2004. The proposed Meeting Place is for the Mariott Hotel in Ogden. If Salt Lake City is honored to host this event, you won't want to miss this one.

    There will be other major Science Fiction conventions coming to Utah in the next few years. Especially after the Olympics. You'll definitely hear about them. ;)

    Later,
