Q: How long have you been around?
A: The first ConDFW was held in 2002 with John Steakley as our guest of honor, on an incredibly slim budget. We have tried to keep the prices at ConDFW low for our members while still bringing you a unique set of guests, entertainers, and activities.
Q: So who’s coming to ConDFW 2009?
A: For 2009, we are both pleased and quite stunned ourselves to bring you TWO Author Guests of Honor: Jim Butcher and David Weber! Great buckets of Thanks to both these gentlemen for accepting our invitations.
