Join us at the Applebee’s in North Babylon, NY to discuss Connie Willis’ Hugo Award-winning novel, <i>Doomsday Book</i>. It’s a chance to talk about a cool book with people who appreciate things like that, and even if you haven’t read this one, join us and help us pick our next.
If you buy the book from Amazon, please use the link at the right of our front page. This costs you nothing at all, but gives ICON Science Fiction (the non-profit behind both LI-CON and I-CON) a bit of income.
I hope to see you there!
Carl here. If you’ve ever wanted to say “Hi” to the chair of the first two LI-CONs (second series), I’ll be on programming at Philcon, Nov 20-22. They should be posting their schedule any day now, but I’m appearing both Saturday and Sunday.
See you there.
The interview with Andy Weir that the Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe held at LI-CON 2 is now available on their web site:
Give a listen.
OK, only those of you who were at the recording of the Skeptics Guide to the Universe are immortal (especially Joe, who got up on stage). That episode has now been posted. (Actually it was posted on August 22, but I’m way behind in my podcast listening.) Click the image below or the link above to hear it.
First, let me thank everyone who came to LI-CON. I hope (and believe) that you all had a good time.
If you couldn’t make Paul Levinson’s concert, you can still hear him! Just watch:
I’d love to announce our next convention, but we won’t actually have any firm plans until at least late September.
Would you like to become part of the action? ICON, our parent company, is always looking for help. If you feel that you can spend some time working on our events–not just LI-CON, but anything that we do–please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coming next week: I finally announce the winner of the free Medieval Times passes.
Applications are still being accepted for Sunday’s COSPLAY CONTEST! Please see the Info Desk before 1:00pm today to register! Special thanks to the following sponsors:

Even if you can’t be at LI-CON on Saturday night, you can still listen to Paul’s concert. Just visit Paul’s YouTube channel:
He will be streaming his concert live!
(It will definitely be more fun if you come listen in person, though.)
