Any new on the event? Any hints on possible dates, if any?
I am going to plan my trip to Canada very soon, and I would love to arrange it so that I can partecipate.

I am so trying to be in on this. Long time lurker and first time poster.  Hello all.  Your explanations and ideas about the books we all love are amazing, thank you all.  I am trying to clear some time in August for the Con.  Im in Pittsburgh, PA so the drive is not too bad I have discovered.  I would love to finally meet some folks that have read and loved Bakker!  I never have any folks to discuss books with and Im not into the net discussions as much (but I am trying now). 

Also,  someone on here recommended some books in a post (I believe it was here, may have been a Reddit thing for Bakker) and I must thank you.  The books in question were the Books of Babel by Josiah Bancroft.  There are two books out in the series now and, wow, super awesome.  Thanks for the suggestion.  These books were amazing and they broke my heart.  Also, very different from Bakker.  I highly recommend. 

Thank you again ladies and gents, I really appreciate your effort and thoughts.

Hello, SalvatorDunyain! Welcome! And, post away, new thoughts are what keep the game alive around here. By the by, i rec'd Senlin Ascends after reading it. Arm of the Sphinx is just as good. Can't wait for the next one to come out, very different than your traditional fantasy fare.

Hello, SalDun! From a fellow reformed lurker and relative newbie, welcome!

Thanks for the Josiah Bancroft recommendation, SD and MSJ. He's on my list!

BK, move it to the top of your list, you'll enjoy it.

Btw, how willing would people be to help pay for food and such? It's not like we're selling tickets, but I have a feeling I'm going to be stuck with a big bill if we don't figure this out beforehand.

No idea how much,  just a general question - would that ask persuade you, fellow Zaudunyani, from coming?

Just post something on FB requesting help for dealing with some mad loss or injustice and that should finance us in a jiffy! Warning, I like to live large  :o

Meeting you guys and meeting Bakker on top...would be awesome to the power of infinity ;)

Unfortunately you all are on the wrong continent for this to be realistic for me :( Anyway, i wish you all the best of times. And do post pictures and make transcripts of your talks (ok, the latter thing is a bit unreasonable to ask for...i know :D ).

It's a good thing BFK almost certainly can't make the scene this year, Wilshire. Can you imagine? "MORE WINE! NO, NO ....THE GOOD STUFF!"

Stuck with a VERY large bill, mon ami!

Kellais - we'll put you on speaker phone from your cell  8)

I said before I probably couldn't swing it, but this is intriguing. I hail from Florida and "working" on my better half to make it happen ( I know, ToaHorror is married - if that's not a sign an impending 2nd Apocalypse, what is? ). Need some idea of the age of you cats - you would gag if you knew how old I was, don't want to be a buzzkill.

We run the gammit of many ages. I don't think anyone here needs be concerned with age.
