2008 Science-Fiction Conventions

The dogwood and redbud trees are in bloom here in Indiana, and spring weather at long last has arrived. And so it's time for me to plan some trips to science-fiction conventions. Last year I made it to DucKon, Context, and Conglomeration, and had a good time at all of them. I missed this year's Conglomeration due to family activities, but I hope to make it to Marcon and WindyCon for the first time, as well as DucKon 17 and Context 21.

One convention that I intentionally boycott is Indianapolis' InConjunction. Some years ago my young daughter and I witnessed some very embarassing and UN-family friendly activities being performed in plain view, in public, during major events at that convention. The people running the convention were fully aware of what was going but did nothing. So I won't go back, even though my daughter is grown now, no longer "in tow" as they say at the cons.

Here are some links to the con sites. I hope to see you there!

Thank you, Nebris, for sharing this wonderful Soviet-era science-fiction art from Dark Roasted Blend. For me, the images are reminiscent of Flash Gordon, Perry Rhodan, and even some anime-style artwork. I urge my readers to also view the truly "Lord of the Rings"-class images of my second home, Armenia, at Though Armenia is now in a terrible crisis of corruption after its recent stolen election, it is, indeed, one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
