Don’t forget about Mythcon 41

Last month, I posted the Call For Papers for Mythcon 41, which will be held in Dallas, Texas, at Southern Methodist University, July 9–12, 2010. The chairs of this event (Randy Hoyt and yours truly) have been hard at work, and we recently finalized the pricing for room and board. Mythcon is a relatively small, intimate gathering, a bit more like a family reunion at times than other conferences I’ve attended — but please don’t let that put your off; we love welcoming new faces too! Point being, most of those attending Mythcon stay in campus housing and eat together on campus as well. We also have a wonderful banquet on Sunday evening. The pricing on room and board this year is quite reasonable, so do consider it.

Also important: we have extended early registration pricing until February 15, 2010. After that, it’s going to go up a bit, so if you’re thinking about coming, not would be a great time to register. You can either send us a check, or pay online in mere minutes. Just follow this link.

Mythcon may still be six months away, but the days will pass more quickly than you realize! If you can’t attend Mythcon yourself but know someone who can, or participate in clubs, groups, or forums, online or off, on fantasy, science-fiction, creative writing, or even horror — we would certainly appreciate your letting folks know about our event.

We now return to your regularly scheduled broadcast.


  1. I posted the announcement of it at eldil : NeoInklings: "For discussion of the works of the literary group the Inklings, whose members included Charles Williams, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Owen Barfield and several others. It is also for discussing their philosophy, theology and literary criticism and related topics."

  2. Thanks, Steve! Much obliged, and thanks also for the link. I’m sure it will interest readers. And I haven’t forgotten about your email either. Juggling too many cats at the moment. :)
