A Fan-Operated Science Fiction and Fantasy Literary and Filk Convention in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area

FenCon Guests and Program Participants

Lois McMaster Bujold - Guest of Honor Guest of Honor: Lois McMaster Bujold
(My Space) (The Bujod Nexus) (Wikipedia) Lois McMaster Bujold was born in Columbus, Ohio, in 1949. She started writing for professional publication in 1982. Her first three SF novels were all published in 1986 by Baen Books. Bujold went on to write the Nebula-winning Falling Free (1988) and many other books featuring her popular character Miles Naismith Vorkosigan, his family, friends, and enemies. The series includes three Hugo Award-winning novels, and her books have been translated into twenty-one languages. Bujold currently lives in Minneapolis.

Music Guest of Honor: Carla Ulbrich
(CarlaU.com) (Wikipedia) (Pegasus Awards) Carla Ulbrich is no stranger to FenCon. If you were at our first two conventions you no doubt remember her witty musical take on wedgies, Klingons, Waffle House, missing buttocks and girlfriends, and how rich she would be if she had the copyright on the 'F' Word. The self described "Professional Smart Aleck" has been compared to a musical combination of Seinfeld, Weird Al and a Bologna sandwich. Originally from Clemson, South Carolina, Carla is currently living in New Jersey (insert your own punchline here) with her husband (also a talented musician and FenCon guest) Joe Giacoio. She actually does this music thing professionally and is a regular performer at SF conventions, coffeehouses, and, oddly, medical conventions where she is billed as "the Singing Patient." Her fifth album "Live From Planet Earth" should be released in time for FenCon this year.She has a book of humorous essays coming out in 2010 called, How Can You Not Laugh at a Time Like This?

Fen Guest of Honor: Warren Buff
Warren Buff is our Fen Guest of Honor for 2009. Warren got his first taste of organized fandom through the SF club at his high school, and hasn't taken a break since. His real breakthrough, though, came on a rather hungover Sunday morning when he stumbled into a panel room to take advantage of the chairs and free water, and learned that there was a lot more to do at cons than just gaming. Now he's chairing a convention (StellarCon 33), serving as president of the Southern Fandom Confederation, and co-chairing the Raleigh in 2010 NASFiC bid. He also edits the Southern Fandom Confederation Bulletin.

Randy Farran

Randy Farran:

Randy Farran was born with a pencil in one hand and a piece of paper in the other-- a fact that his mother reminds him of at every opportunity. At an early age his teachers noticed that he might have a future as an astronaut or an astronomer (okay, the actual words were "He's just taking up space!"). It wasn't long before he was actually building his own spaceships (they never got off the ground, but seeing that they were made out of cardboard boxes, this was probably a good thing; re-entry could have been bad). He took up playing the mandolin because it was easier to carry around than, say, a bass fiddle or a pipe organ. Nowadays, he draws more penguins than he'd like to admit to, writes the occasional new song, and lives in with his wife Barbara and two cartoon dogs in Tulsa, Oklahoma--and still makes spaceships out of cardboard boxes.

Muff Musgrave is one half of that team known as Real and Muff. Some would say that she is the organized and practical half...and they might just be right.  But she also has a great deal of creative input and many ideas of her own ( as I'm sure Real will tell you!) Since retiring almost 3 years ago she has devoted a great deal of time to volunteering with her local Humane Society, fostering kittens and trying to read every book in their vast and ever growing library. Ask her about the new Bohemian Room if you want to see one of her creative projects.  Saturday only.

Real Musgrave

Real Musgrave:

(Wikipedia) Real Musgrave, the creator of Pocket Dragons, is an artist who has managed to have an entirely satisfying career. He used his pets as inspiration and was able to work at home with his beautiful wife. By lovingly creating slightly skewed versions of events in their everyday life, he and Muff were able to create an "empire". There were one-man museum retrospectives, one-man gallery shows, international collectors clubs, cards, posters, toys, figurines, a magazine, personal appearance tours, speaking with thousands of very nice people, a TV series with 104 episodes shown in over 60 countries, and some prestigious awards. The head of Disney Television laughed that it was a "two person multi-national conglomerate". Working on every aspect and maintaining complete creative control for over 35 years brought success and immense satisfaction –he says it's like a toddler's "I do it myself!" --but also ever-lengthening (to impossible) hours. So January 1st 2007 he retired. Happily. Saturday only.
