Steven Heinrich here, I'm running the dealers room for this convention:

http://www.condfw.org...

Author Guest of Honor: Peter S. Beagle
Artist Guest of Honor: Donato Giancola

Please see our current list of 43 attending writers below (panel times schedul coming soon!)

Book Swap:
Be sure to bring your used books to swap for new ones. This year we will have a good selection of science fiction, fantasy and horror for you to choose from.

ArtShow:
There are a limited number of panels and tables, and they will be first-come, first-serve. Once they sell out, a waiting list will be compiled and any panels or tables that come free will be released to the waiting list in order.

Gaming: Oh yes, there will be gaming. Exact types of games, LARPs, and tournaments TBA, as things develop. Keep checking in for updates!

Just so you guys know:  ConDFW is the coolest combination of a relax-a-con and a hardcore literary con that I have ever seen. 

It is not uncommon to go to a bunch of killer panels during the day, and then hang with the authors in the bar at night.  It's brilliant.

Re: ConDfw Feb. 22-24th Tables still left!

I still have several tables left, for those that are interested.

It's a very laid back convention.  Wonderful if you are looking to develop you abilities as a writer.  Lots of gaming too!

I saw that Giancola was going to be the guest artist of honor! He is simply amazing...

I also saw that we can just bring art and leave it there to be auctioned off.  I had a question as to whether this has to be original, one-time art (such as a real painting).  I know this isn't part of the dealer's room but if you have any info on that...thanks!

I can answer that HP:

My friend Michelle (www.knotwyrks.com) has sold at ConDFW before.  The stuff she sold was original but she had made prints of it and sold them elsewhere.  You can auction prints, but they will not do as well as original art.

Hrmmmm..... Looks like I am going to be at ConDFW after all.

OK guys.  Here's the deal: Show at the con and say Hi if you want to see the face of the nasty critter that is being all evil about the A-Kon AA. 

I will be arriving very late on Thursday night and will be setting up as soon as they let us in on Friday morning.  I'm planning to hook up with people on Friday and Saturday nights, but if you have questions or comments about the A-Kon AA, come on over and talk to me at the table.  Look for the mannequin.
