Conolulu, The 53rd Westercon With John Lorentz

Our Guests

Dan Simmons

Ctein

John Lorentz

--------------------------------------------------------------------


There will be a wide range of program items organized by Ben Yalow along with a staff usually found running programming for Worldcons. But this will not be a sixteen-track extravaganza. In keeping with our laid-back island nature, programming will allow you plenty of time to visit with friends and do a bit of sightseeing. Besides authors, artists and fans speaking, we will have local scientists talking about their specialties...

Program as of 15 June 2000

This is the latest version of the Program. We think it is fairly close to what will actually happen at-con, but There Will Be Changes! As always, we can't promise that any of these items will actually happen or that the people listed will actually be at the con or on the particular program item. But we think this -- bad weather, volcanic eruptions, illness, travel disruptions, giant meteor impacts, or the like notwithstanding -- is pretty close to what will really happen.

This is the last version we will be posting! We hope to see you there!
