Got word via email from Melissa Tatum that I've been invited to be a program participant again at Conestoga. I really enjoyed Conestoga last July and I replied with my acceptance immediately.
Conestoga 10 will be held in Tulsa July 28-30, 2006. I had a reading and was a member of three panels at last year's convention; I chaired the panel on "How to Beat Writer's Block".
The Conestoga Guest of Honor this year will be David Drake, with Robin Wayne Bailey as Toastmaster; Don Maitz will be Artist Guest of Honor; and Lynn Stranathan and Selina Rosen will be the Fan Guests of Honor. The convention's charity is the Royal Gauntlet Birds of Prey Rehabilitation Center.
This year's Conestoga will celebrate the 10th Anniversaries of Conestoga, Meisha Merlin, and Yard Dog Press, so it will be a special year and a great convention. The hotel will again be the Sheraton Tulsa, Highway 169 at E. 41st Street. The hotel phone number is 918-627-5000. The convention is hosted by Tulsa Science Fiction Society. Its web site is located at www.sftulsa.org.
