Science Fiction

I'm in Tulsa at CONestoga, a science fiction convention. There's a ton of stuff going on. Live Action Role Play, extensive gaming, sf films, readings by many, many authors. The Yard Dog Press (a micro press) has put on numerous entertainment functions like their "Traveling Show" which is basically readings from their Bubba books with other writers from their publishing house mocking the reading author with "interpretive dancing." (Not a g-rated show.) Funny.

Apparently, this year marks the tenth anniversary of CONestoga, Yard Dog Press and Meisha-Merlin Publishing. It also marks the birth of a new game called ABEO. It's like unto White Wolf's Gaming system but completely different. I may have to write some books based on the world. It is very cool and I'm sure you would love it. (Not in stores yet.) Remember, you heard it here first.

I'm about a half hour away from watching THE MASQUERADE. That's parade/show where people attending the con get up on stage in their costumes. There's judging, certificates. I'll let you know how that goes.

I worked with Mom in Muskogee today. Then we went up to Hulbert to check out some cabins we'll be in Thursday - Saturday at Western Hills Guest Ranch. Nice place! I could totally see a writers conference or something going on there. :)

Anyway.... We were about 20-30 minutes from Tulsa. It was time to go home though. Maybe next year.

I'm always interested in places where a writer's event/retreat could be held. Is there a web link to this place?

Or...does anyone else have suggestions for where we could get together for something of this nature?
