Harlan Ellison’s Last Convention?

Hmmm. I seem to have heard this before … at least that’s what he said at WorldCon when I went several years ago.

Anyway, Harlan Ellison is scheduled to be one of the Guests of Honor at MadCon this year. Held Sept. 24 to 26 in Madison, Wi., MadCon seems to be a science fiction focused convention … but who can tell from their website, which is still quite in its infancy.

About the author

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.
