FenCon is only days away and we are ready to go!

The guests are ready, the progamming list is ready, and the hotel is waiting for arrivals.

FenCon was featured in a very positive article in The Messenger, a local Flower Mound, TX newspaper last Friday.

Our website has over 9700 hits!

So please join us, if you can, at FenCon this Friday, September 24, and meet Larry Niven, Michael Longcor, Elizabeth Moon, Joe R. Lansdale, Ardath Mayhar (a new special guest just added) and over 30 writers, artists, and filkers.

A lot has happened in the past two months.

The FenCon Committee operated a fan table at Sci-Fi Expo in July. We brought Joe Dalek which drew a lot of attention even from the celebrity guests.

Our room party at Conestoga didn't end until 4 am!

Our guest list expanded. Joe R. Lansdale is now a Special Guest at FenCon.

The program book is being compiled.

Fliers have been dropped off at various locations in the Metroplex, in Natchitoches, LA and at the Romance Writers Association Conference.

This weekend, the FenCon Committee will host a room party at ArmadilloCon in Austin. This is a big literary convention and we hope to sell a lot of memberships.

FenCon 2005 ToastMaster and Filk Guest of Honor have been confirmed and will be announced next month at FenCon.

Memberships are $30 until August 31 and will be $35 at the door.

Be sure to make your hotel reservations before September 10.

Back from Roc*Kon!

Our room party was a smash! We were lucky that the room next to us was empty because it got loud along the way.

Joe Dalek won 'Most Humorous Costume-Male' in the costume contest.

Pictures will be on the website soon.

We also confirmed three more guests!

David Lee Anderson (from Oklahoma)
Julia Blackshear Kosatka (from Houston)
Wm. Mark Simmons (from Louisiana)

We have guests from numerous states attending. We are hoping for attendees from multiple states as well.
