I know lots of you have heard about FOGcon, but for those who missed it:
The Friends of Genre Convention (FOGcon) is a literary-themed San Francisco SF/F con in the tradition of Wiscon and Readercon. Each year we’ll focus on a new theme in speculative fiction and invite Honored Guests ranging from writers to scientists to artists. We will build community, exchange ideas, and share our love for the literature of imagination.
Things are going great! We’re hammering out a lot of details right now, including programming and social events, and you’ll get news on the FOG site when we’re ready to announce things.
The reason I’m posting is to say that I am chairing the convention, which some people may not know. There will be brief bios of many of the concom on the site soon. But it’s many of the same people who run Potlatch and/or WisCon, so if you like those cons, it’s a good bet that you’ll like FOGcon too.
Personally, I know the true character of the con will emerge as we build a community, and I can’t wait to see what happens there. It’s like a sociology thesis in the making. 🙂
Please check out the website if you haven’t already! I hope you’ll visit us out here in San Francisco.
