Shore Leave, A fan run Science Fiction Convention
Novel Places (23330 Frederick Road, Clarksburg, MD 20871-9704) returns as our "Meet the Prose" book dealer with book wizard Patrick Darby, assisted by Lauretta Nagel (formerly of Constellation Books) and Russ Doyle (formerly of Borders Books), who have been our book providers at Shore Leave in previous years.
As usual, Novel Places will also be at Shore Leave on Saturday and Sunday; if you can't make it to the Meet the Pros on Friday night, you'll still have the chance to obtain the books. (It may, of course, be a bit harder to find all the authors.)
As always on Friday night at 10pm we will have a gathering of our writer, artist, and science guests in the rear of the long hallway in front of the ballroom. Please come to meet these guests, chat, and get a few books signed.
Our author guests this year are:
Danielle Ackley-McPhail, Rigel Ailur, Lorraine Anderson, Christopher L. Bennett, Joseph F Berenato, Martin Berman-Gorvine, Kirsten Beyer, T.A. Chafin, Russ Colchamiro, Daniel Patrick Corcoran, Michael Critzer, Kathleen David, Peter A. David, Mary Louise Davie, Keith R.A. DeCandido, Kevin Dilmore, Mary Fan, Donna Frelick, Michael Jan Friedman, Dave Galanter, Charles E Gannon, Allyn Gibson, Phil Giunta, Robert Greenberger, Amy Griswold, Glenn Hauman, Jim Johnson, Bob Jones, Stephen Kozeniewski, David Mack, Kelly Meding, John Jackson Miller, Susan Olesen, Joshua Palmatier, Marco Palmieri, Scott Pearson, TJ Perkins, Susanna Reilly, Aaron Rosenberg, Melissa Scott, Darla Vasilas, Steve Vasilas, Dayton Ward, Howard Weinstein, Richard C. White and Steven H. Wilson
