FLYCON is on this weekend. Voyager authors attending include Jennifer Fallon, Karen Miller, Jack Dann, Kim Falconer, Tony Shillitoe, Elizabeth Knox, Devon Monk and Sara Douglass (and potentially more, who have forgotten to tell me!).
Flycon 2009 is an international online convention seeking to break down the tyranny of distance, and will be held over the weekend March 13th (starting midnight, Australian Eastern Standard Time) to Sunday 15th. The con will be held through Live Journal, with forum and chat space also being donated by several sites.
There are streams for horror/dark speculative fiction, science fiction & fantasy; an online masquerade ball with the theme ‘Out of this World’, (see details below); Dealers Room; and informal chat/forum lounges.
There will be links to the Masquerade forum from 8pm Saturday 14th March (Sydney) until it closes 10 pm Saturday 14th March (Los Angeles) There will be a Flickr account for people to upload photos of them in costume, and of particular interest for the purplezoners, Granny shall be supplying the cyber buffet. Find out more about Flycon and make sure you drop in over the weekend!
It really will be out of this world!
