Programming deadline nearing. Have you ever gone to a science fiction convention and wondered, “Why don’t they have a panel about X, Y, or Z?” Or “I knew more about that show than the panelists. I could have done a better job.” Well here is your chance. Capricon is looking for panel ideas and panelists for next February’s convention.
If you have an idea, or want to be on a panel, you have until Friday, November 21 at 11:59pm. Your starting point is http://capricon.org/capricon35/programming/ – note that you do have to create an account (which will be used for registration as well) in order to complete the survey. You do not need to purchase a membership prior to complete the survey though.
If any of you would like to be on programming, or have ideas for panels, please fill out the questionnaire or submit your idea(s) via email (email@example.com).
Capricon is pleased to announce the addition of Margaret Weis as our Gaming Guest of Honor for Capricon 35.
Margaret Weis is a science fiction and fantasy writer who has penned dozens of novels and short stories; along with Tracy Hickman, Margaret is one of the original creators of the Dragonlance world. In addition to her writing career, Margaret serves as the owner and chief officer of two publishing companies: Sovereign Press, Inc., a game publisher based in Lake Geneva, WI, which now produces the Dragonlance line of game products; and Margaret Weis Productions Ltd., which publishes RPG lines based on several licenses including Firefly, Serenity, and Battlestar Galactica, as well as Ed Greenwood’s new solo venture into roleplaying games, Castlemourn.
Capricon 35 has added John Bivens as our Artist Guest of Honor.
John Bivens is a comic book creator (mainly an illustrator) from Illinois. His work has appeared in the Eisner and Harvey award winning “Comic Book Tatoo”, DC comic’s ZUDA initiative, and the Image Comics SF/Fantasy epic “Dark Engine.”
Due to unavoidable circumstances, Steve Jackson will not be able to join us at Capricon 35. Mr. Jackson is as sad as we are, as he was looking forward to being a Guest of Honor alongside his friend and fellow gamer Matt Forbeck.
