Here’s another reason to be sad that I can’t go back to San Francisco: I would like to attend FOGcon.
The cute name with the play on the Bay Area’s most famous weather condition stands for “Friends of Genre Convention”, but if you think that means it will be about pulp and the like you’d be wrong. The web site says it is, “a literary-themed San Francisco SF/F con in the tradition of Wiscon and Readercon.”
See, just my sort of thing. The first event will be March 11-13, 2011 and the Honored Guests are Pat Murphy and Jeff VanderMeer.
Timmi Duchamp Rachel Swirsky [fixed per comment below], who is on the committee, has more details.
Have fun folks, wish I could be there.
