Dr. Tom Lombardo will be holding a three day workshop entitled “Science Fiction: The Mythology of the Future” from September 19-21 in Grand Rapids, MI. The workshop will look at the history of science fiction in a variety of different aspects. The cost for the workshop is $395.
The Board of Directors for ConClave, Inc. and the ConClave concom have announced that the convention will not be held in 2012 due to a less than successful hotel search. The organization is still undergoing a comprehensive hotel search and expect to hold the convention again in 2013. The committee will also take the extra time to determine the direction future ConClaves will take given the changing demographics and technologies of fandom and science fiction. ConClave has been held annually in the Detroit area for thirty-six years.
