Actually, the event info is here, 'tis at the LAX Marriott, with Guest of Honor Catherynne M. Valente (cheer):

I arranged my NOV con schedule waaaay back in the beginning of the year. Who knew I'd poop out so fast and soon. :D I could say it's due to the mending broken foot (and I'm super grateful to the friends and fellow creatives who've come out to share table space and help Lame Me at these shindigs!), but I didn't know waaaay back in Jan or March that I would be deep in certain manuscripts---mostly behind, I'd say---and wanting to have *5* Charm School graphic albums in print.

 

So that's where my mind dwells. That and I'm quite comfy wearing thermal jammies and drinking hot chocolate. I can swing hot chocolate at the Marriott, maybe, but the pajamas have to stay home. ;)

 

SEE you at LosCon, if you're going! I will be in the dealer's room with my Dark Victorian and Sundark books. :D

The History of Loscon in a Nutshell…

In December 1975 the Los Angeles Science Fantasy prepared LA 2000, a special convention to celebrate the club’s 2,000th meeting. The event was so enjoyable that it was repeated in 1976. At this time it moved to October to honor the club’s anniversary and called itself LOSCON for the first time. It was held twice in 1977, the second that year being the first with an official guest of honor, Dr. Jerry Pournelle. By 1978 it had finally settled into an annual November affair, the Los Angeles Regional Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention. Then starting with LOSCON 9 in 1982, the Thanksgiving weekend was chosen and became subsequently the traditional date.
