    I've heard great things about all these conventions but I never seem to know exactly when and where they are. I know there are many around, what are you favorites and what time of year do they usually come around?

    "Cons" go on all year long in the Carolinas and all over. I would say the 3 major international cons are:

    1) DragonCon in Atlanta usually over Labor Day each year
    2) San Diego Comicon in July each year . . . in San Diego :p
    3) Celebration - next date is ???

    Locally from what I've observed the big "local" cons are:

    1) Heroes in the summer. This past year was in June
    2) StellarCon in High Point, NC in March
    3) HickoryCon in the Spring and Summer
    4) Con Carolinas in Charlotte in June
    5) MonsterCon - well, we are hoping it will be annual. :D

    This is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to cons. You could spend each weekend at a Con somewhere. Kelly Lockhart maintains a calendar called the [link=http://www.scenic-city.com/sfrg/calendar.htm]Southern Fandom Resource Guide[/link] with a list of the cons on the Southeast circuit. [Baltimore is on there because Kelly likes the Shore Leave Con so apparently MD is now a Southern state 8-}].

    Hope this helps. :)

    It really depends on the Con. ConCarolina is an all weekend event so it is $25.

    One day events are usually $10 and under.

    Actually I think that would be 2010. I just check the release date and it was May 21, 1980.
