World Science Fiction Convention

(by Lance Erlick)

Just returned from Lonestarcon3 in San Antonio. This is our second.

Another great cast of panelists included David Brin, Ben Bova, Connie Willis, Greg Benford, Harry Turtledove, Joe Haldeman, John Scalzi (who won the Hugo this year), Kim Stanley Robinson, and many more. Newer faces included Paolo Bacigalupi and the epub sensation, Hugh Howey. It was a fun packed 4 days. While it was 100 degrees outside, inside the heat came from the fun, ideas, and discussions.

I also enjoyed catching up with members I met at last year’s convention in Chicago. Well worth the time and travel to get there.
