Let me introduce myself. I am Adam Niswander, an author. I've written some mythos novels.
Kevin Ross suggested I join and post here about a new convention which will be held in January 2011 in Phoenix, AZ, USA. It is called MythosCon and will be an attempt to bring back the good parts of the former NecronomiCon in Providence.
My friend Mark Boniece and I felt like there was a need for a new Lovecraftian Convention and this is our answer.
Though it is early for commitments, a number of my friends have said they will plan to attend--including Alan Dean Foster, Brian Lumley, David Drake, F. Paul Wilson, Greg Bear, S. T. Joshi, Wilum Pugmire, Stephen Mark Rainy, W. Paul Ganley, and Richard Lupoff. Also, the right horrible Robert M. Price has agreed to take up the dangling tentacles of Cthulhu and preside once again at the Cthulhu Prayer Breakfast.
We will feature a full track of Call of Cthulhu Gaming in three rooms throughout the con, as well as pretty much continuous readings, an art show, a mass autographing, and a couple tracks of panels both scholarly and fun.
We are negotiating with the hotel at present. Hope to finalize it before the end of the month. Then we'll move a bit faster.
The rudimentary website is at mythoscon.org. We'll get more of it up soon.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Feel free to contact me with questions.
Memberships are not yet for sale, but will be $50 each through 1 January 2010. Then they will go up. Get 'em as soon as we start making them available.
