Farpoint [Convention]

Join us from February 15-17, 2013, at the 20th annual Farpoint Convention at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Timonium, MD.

And consider attending our Farpoint Mardi Gras Party on Saturday night, where we'll be celebrating the launch of http://scifioutpost.net, www.NerDC.net, and Can't Stop the Serenity Arlington 2013!

FARPOINT is an annual gathering for fans of all genres of imaginative fiction – science fiction, fantasy, horror, superheroes – in all the media formats in which they might appear. While its focus is on Fandom (and all the creative people who comprise it), its real goal is to give fans the opportunity to meet others like themselves, to forge friendships, and to develop their own creative gifts.

REGISTRATION: You can register in advance by clicking HERE. The headline guests, who have been paid an appearance fee, typically sign one autograph for you as part of your membership (though not always). They may charge for additional autographs.

LODGING: The convention has negotiated with the hotel for a special room rate of $125 per night* plus taxes. Click HERE for instructions on how to reserve your room.

This is largely an "on your own" event. However, I will email my contact info closer to the date in case you'd like to connect during the con.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
