We look forward to launching Diane Baron’s latest book, The Fandom Fifty, at Shore Leave 41 SF convention this July in Hunt Valley, MD!
Attendees of the convention will be able to buy copies of The Fandom Fifty, and all other Firebringer Press titles, at the Friday night Meet the Pros book fair from 10PM to midnight.
Further, Steve Wilson, Phil Giunta, and Diane Baron will host our usual discussion panel showcasing our current titles and updating everyone on what’s to come, including the third volume in the Middle of Eternity anthology series and the next installment of The Arbiter Chronicles, Steve Wilson’s popular SF series.
Sorry for the extended absence from blogging but we’ve been busy both with writing and editing projects as well as fending off that gluttonous and enervating creature known as Real Life. You know, the one that brings no end of distractions and problems in its malevolent attempts to demotivate us.
Unfortunately, that particular beast has been working overtime as of late.
However, we are excited to report that Diane Baron’s upcoming non-fiction book, The Fandom Fifty, is nearly through the first round of editing.
The Fandom Fifty, due out later this year, is a collection of interviews and anecdotes from many of the organizers, guests, and attendees of Maryland’s SF Convention scene. The Baltimore region is home to a number of popular and enduring SF cons that include Farpoint, Balticon, Shore Leave, and others.
On Sunday afternoon at Farpoint, Phil Giunta and veteran writer Peter David will co-host a screening of Dreams with Sharp Teeth, the 90-minute documentary about Harlan Ellison (1934-2018), one of the most awarded writers in history. The film stars Harlan, Robin Williams, Neil Gaiman, Peter David, Ronald Moore, and others. We’re thrilled and grateful that director and producer, Erik Nelson, granted permission for the screening.
Farpoint 26, February 8-10, 2019. Hunt Valley Marriott Delta, Hunt Valley, MD. Celebrity guests include Wallace Shawn (Princess Bride, Deep Space Nine, etc.), and voice actors Rob Paulson and Maurice LaMarche.
Writer guests include Peter David, Howard Weinstein, Robert Greenberger, David Mack, Michael Jan Friedman, Aaron Rosenberg, Keith RA DeCandido, Daniel Ackley-McPhail, Heather Hutsell, Kelli Fitzpatrick, Derek Tyler Attico, Steven H. Wilson, Phil Giunta, Mary Fan, Russ Colchamiro, Glenn Hauman, and more.
