Albacon is a weekend gathering of fans and creators of Science Fiction or Fantasy, including literature, movies, games, and other mediums. Events include panel discussions, interviews, films, games, readings, autographs, an art show, special events, a fabulous dealers room, debates, conversation, and general socializing. Albacon 2008 will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Albany, NY. All rooms at that hotel are currently sold out, so it must be a popular conference. Has anyone ever been?
This year’s honored guests include Anne McCaffrey (Dragonriders of Pern) and Todd McCaffrey and artist Barclay Shaw. The programming schedule has not been announced yet.
