The Fandom Fifty is On Its Way!

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.
