Arisia, FOGcon, and upcoming January-March cons

Please spread the word and be reminded:

Con or Bust will be taking requests for assistance to attend SFF cons in January, February, and March 2013 from November 15-November 25 (detailed instructions). These include:

Arisia, January 18-21, Boston, Massachusetts, "New England's largest and most diverse science fiction and fantasy convention." Its Writer Guests of Honor are Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes; its Artist Guest of Honor is Roger Dean; and its Musical Guests of Honor are Emerald Rose. Arisia has donated two memberships and three nights in a double hotel room.

FOGCon, March 8-10, Walnut Creek, California, "a literary-themed San Francisco SF/F con in the tradition of Wiscon and Readercon." Its theme is Law, Order & Crime; its Honored Guests are Terry Bisson and Susan R. Matthews. FOGCon has donated two memberships.

If you'd like to support Con or Bust, you can donate money, transfer con memberships (e-mail me at knepveu@steelypips.org), or—especially—spread the word that assistance will be available.
