It's not too early to think about JordanCon. The yearly convention, dedicated to our beloved Robert Jordan and his Wheel of Time series, has already taken place for this year. But 2016 is right around the corner.
It's already been announced that John Strangway will be the Toastmaster. John is best known for his Steampunk Boba Fett, but within The Wheel of Time fandom, he's known for a magnificent Perrin Aybara cosplay and photo shoot.
The Author Guests of Honor will be Catherine Asaro, author of more than twenty-five novels, including City of Bones, The Spacetime Pool, and Undercity. More of Dr. Asaro's works can be found at her website.
The Artist Guest of Honor will be John Picacio, who won the Hugo Award for "Best Professional Artist" in 2012 and 2013. You can see more of Mr. Picacio's work on his website.
And there's a chance that JordanCon will once again host the DeepSouthCon.
JordanCon will enter an emergency bid to host DeepSouthCon in 2016. This follows last month’s announcement that the previously scheduled convention, “ABC DSC”, taking place in Atlanta this May, has been cancelled.
DeepSouthCon is a traveling science fiction fan convention that travels the southeastern United States. It has the distinction of being the oldest literary convention in the region, and sponsors the Phoenix and Rebel awards.
JordanCon had the honor of hosting DeepSouthCon #51, during which the Phoenix was awarded to Robert Jordan, and the Rebel was awarded to Regina Kirby & M. Lee Rogers. JordanCon 8 will take place on April 22-24, 2016, at the Atlanta Marriot Perimeter Center in Atlanta, Georgia with Toastmaster John Strangeway. Guests of Honor will be author Catherine Asaro and artist John Picacio.
