Campbell Conference special guests firming up!

...and I don't just mean that they're getting into shape ;-)

Right now, we have a nearly final list of guest authors and editors who'll be attending this year's Campbell Conference and Awards Ceremony in Lawrence, Kansas, from July 10-12. That's just two weeks, folks!

If you've been having trouble deciding if you can make it this year, just remember that it's only $30 for the full weekend (and only $25 for the Awards Banquet), and you'll get a chance to meet these folks and have them sign your books (which will also be available at the Oread Book Store during the signing):

Robin Wayne Bailey
Cory Doctorow
James Alan Gardner
Jude-Marie Green
James Gunn
Kij Johnson
Ian R. MacLeod
Chris McKitterick
Eric T. Reynolds
Lane Robins
And this year's Campbell and Sturgeon Award winners - to be announced very soon!

So don't miss a great opportunity to hang with these authors and editors - and attending scholars and fans - for the weekend! The Campbell Conference is a special event, something I've been part of since 1992, because of its unusual intimacy: You get to spend one-on-one time with a lot of interesting people and professionals in the field, whereas at most conventions, there are many others vying for time with the special guests.

Haven't registered yet? Do it now!

Best,
Chris
