Great Local Con

I heard about The Fourth Street Fantasy Convention while swapping oh-my-gods about Shadow Unit with another fan. It's the return of what looks like a fantastic, small con with amazing pros attending. It's the child of Steven Brust, Elizabeth Bear is the Guest of Honor, and Patrick Nielsen Hayden, Teresa Nielsen Hayden, Emma Bull, Will Shetterly, Eleanor Arnason, Sarah Monette and Ellen Klages will also attend.
"Fourth Street is a small convention for people who are serious about good fantasy and good books– serious about reading them, serious about writing them, serious about appreciating them in all their various forms. It’s also for people who are serious about having a good time. It’s a weekend of high-quality, high-intensity, mind-stretching fun, focused on books– there’s a single track of programming that is at the heart of it all. When everyone sees the same panels, it leads to fascinating conversations in the consuite, hotel bar, and corridors."
