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, T Eric Bakutis, Christopher L. Bennett, Joseph F Berenato, Kirsten Beyer, Diana Botsford, A G Case, T.A. Chafin, Russ Colchamiro, Daniel Patrick Corcoran, Greg Cox, Kathleen David, Peter A. David, Mary Louise Davie, Keith R.A. DeCandido, Kevin Dilmore, Michael Jan Friedman, Dave Galanter, Andrew E.C. Gaska, Phil Giunta, Jo Graham, Robert Greenberger, Amy Griswold, Glenn Hauman, Amanda Headlee, Jim Johnson, Jeffrey Lang, William Leisner, David Mack, Patricia Lee Macomber, Sally Malcolm, Ari McKay, Kelly Meding, Susan Olesen, Marco Palmieri, Patricia Papineau, Susanna Reilly, Aaron Rosenberg, Stuart S.
