ConQuesT39 Announces Faculty List with Sandy Lender
Or...The Dragon's going to Kansas City for ConQuesT39 over Memorial Day weekend

In exciting news, the organizers of this year's ConQuesT in Kansas City, Mo., mailed out the Faculty Handbook for Fandom University. That's right: if you're a sci-fi/fantasy/horror fan, you're in for a schedule sure to set your imagination alight at Fanimal House 2008 this May 23-25 at the Airport Hilton in good ol' K.C., Mo. Yours truly, Fantasy Author Sandy Lender, will be on hand to speak about blogging and trends in homosexuality in sci-fi/fantasy lit, and to read from my first fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods. If you bring your copy to the autograph session Saturday at 4:30 (or any other time you bump into me at the con), I'd be happy to personalize it for you.

Now, there's more to draw you to ConQuesT than my happy mug. The special media guests this year are Ellen Muth of Dead Like Me and Jeff East of Young Clark Kent. The guest of honor is Joe R. Lansdale; the artist guest of honor is David Lee Anderson; and the toastmaster is Wm. Mark Simmons.

Seminar tracts include anime, blogging, British TV, comedy, creative writing and publishing, filk, gaming, literature, science and more. Saturday night's masquerade promises to be a Kodak moment and the Story-in-a-Bag contest should bring plenty of laughs (with prizes). It's going to be a great event, and I encourage anyone who hasn't already made plans to consider getting out to Kansas City for the long weekend. The festivities end with "graduation" Sunday afternoon so you have plenty of driving time on Memorial Day...

Down to business: If you'd like more information about ConQuesT39, check out the site here.
If you need a copy of Choices Meant for Gods, get free two-day shipping at Amazon here. I'll have some copies on hand that I can sell and sign on-site, but you shouldn't count on the dealers in the dealer room being well-stocked. I've learned from past conventions that they don't always communicate well with the distributors like Ingrams and Baker & Taylor.

Hope to see you in Kansas City over Memorial Day weekend!
"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
