Someone asked if a paper must be presented to come to the Conference.
You do not need to present a paper to be part of the audience. We love our audience!
jan finder started these conferences back in 1969 and 1971 (and again in 2011)because he wanted to learn what other people knew. And he enjoyed sharing his knowledge with others.
So come to our Conference. We would love to have you with us whether you are speaking or listening to others.
Robert Davis of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt meandered by our fantable at Arisia, and offered us some books for give aways. They’re sitting here, next to my computer, anxiously awaiting new homes. I’ll be announcing how you can get one…I’d say “soon” but my “soon” is not the “soon” of other people. But sooner than “Real Soon Now”. (Real Soon Now is fan-speak for “don’t hold your breath”.)
Many of them will be door prizes at the Conference, so get your membership NOW!
The prices posted on these books will compensate part or all of your membership, especially if you register now!
$30 rate extended to May 31, 2014 (because we’ve been slow).
See Registration for all rates, and registration info.
