Fogcon 2012 is open for registration: http://fogcon.org/
Fogcon is a literary-themed San Francisco Bay Area science fiction convention. The convention theme for 2012 is "The Body", and the honored guests will be Nalo Hopkinson, Shelley Jackson, and Mary Shelley (as ghost of honor?).
I had so much fun at last year's Fogcon that I volunteered to be on the con committee for this year's. I will be helping to run the consuite. So, y'all have to come or I will be encumbered with sadness and an oversupply of snacks.
