Trinoc-con will be held 3 - 5 Aug at the North Raleigh Hilton, with Guest of Honor George R R Martin

Other authors attending include Elizabeth Hand Warren Rochelle John Kessell Graham Watkins and many others. How about a LT get-together?

Thanks for the info. I'll go for Elizabeth Hand and my better half likes G.R.R.M. Any chance Uncle Orson will show up?

Orson Scott Card did show up once or twice in previous years, just for the day, and unannounced. There was also frequent talk of Robert Jordan making an appearance some year. I'll check with the people involved with the literary program and see if they know any secrets.

I emailed OSC and his assistant said he wasn't coming, that he would be out of town. :-(

A few more interesting authors have been added as program participants: Dale Bailey and Sandra McDonald.

I heard about George R R Martin being at the Con - great author, and enjoyable speaker. Do you know which day he's speaking? Or is he involved throughout the weekend? (Mayhaps a reading from "Dance with Dragons"?)

George R R Martin is the guest of honor; he'll be at the convention all weekend. I believe his schedule is up on the convention website: www.trinoc-con.org

I can't come this year but I was at last year's because the GoH was Gene Wolfe. Heard him read a new story and managed a brief chat. Also had an enjoyable conversation with John Kessell, who is local (he teaches at NCSU) and might be there again this year.
