Dates announced! New Hotel!
Hypericon 7 will be at the Holiday Inn Express Airport from June 17 - 19, 2011.
Many of you asked for a new hotel and now we've got one for you! Now we need your help.
Go to www.hienashville.com and use the group code HYP if you make your reservations online. If you want to make them by phone, call 1-888-HOLIDAY (1-888-465-4329) and mention the hotel name and Hypericon to get the con room rate of $89.
It is very important that you make your room reservations. The more reservations we get for the convention, the more we can keep the lower room rate.

C'mon, guys. I just had to update the Wikipedia article for Hypericon, which had information on the upcoming 2009 Hypericon and the old hypericon.info URL on it. Get with the program!
I've also urged Janis Ian to try and make Hypericon some year.
(BTW, when you gonna ask me to be a GoH? Chattacon is okay, but it only happens once a year.) Current Mood: dogged

Wii contest at Hypericon.
I am holding a sort of contest at Hypericon that I was holding only online. Online it's been going on for a little over a week. For every $50.00 you spend at my table you get entered in to have a chance at winning a Nintendo Wii. The winner will be decided about a week after the con and I will notify you by phone or email. Shipping will be free or you can pick up if you are local. Please check out my table for all your giant monster needs. thanks so much.

Follow us for updates and general internet tomfoolery. There might even be some hijinks from time to time.
This community is still a great place for those of you who have questions but any tweet with "Hypericon" in it will eventually be noticed by the Great Internet Gods and is likely to get a response.

Frolicon Staff Meeting
April 9-12, 2009
Sheraton Gateway Atlanta
November's staff meeting planning is well underway. We'll have our regular staff/volunteer/want to find out more meeting at the NEW FANCY HOTEL, Saturday, November 8, at 4 pm. The meeting room will be posted at the hotel.
If you are key staff and/or are doing several pieces of programming, we encourage you to come out since we do have some space planning to discuss.
At this meeting you'll be able to find out what's coming up in the Frolicon world, volunteer to help, preregister at the $40 onsite registration charge, get a look at the new hotel space, ask any questions you may have, and generally get pumped up and excited about one of the best conventions around!!!
We won't be having a party, but we will be skulking around the bar and hot tub later that night, so stick around and have some fun.
If you plan to stay overnight, the Sheraton has a small block of rooms set up for us at the convention rate. All you need to do is call them and ask. We hope you'll stick around and hang out with us.

Abaddon (and Elizabeth Donald) coming to Nashville!
Forgive me the non-con-related post, but several of you at Hypericon asked about ABADDON's print release. Now it's out, and I'll be in Nashville this weekend!
I just found out about this yesterday - talk about last-minute! The Nashville Comic and Horror Festival is this weekend at the state fairgrounds. A flurry of phone calls to my publisher, the convention organizer and lining up crash space - it's good to have friends - and it seems like it's time to strap on the guitar!
The festival is 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds in Nashville. Admission is $10 a day, with coupons available at local comic shops. There's gaming, tournaments and media guests from the very best in hack-n-slash. :)
PLEASE come! I'll have copies of ABADDON and other books and since they have no time to advertise me, I'll be very very bored without my dear fans dropping by! I'll also be carrying books by John Everson, Steven Shrewsbury and Charles Embrey Jr., among others.
For more information, check out their web site at http://comiccitytn.com/hfest08_home.html
. See you soon!

Frolicon goes to The Mark
You heard it right kiddies!
We're heading up to Nashville, TN October 18 to visit our fine friends at The Mark (www.themarkbycpi.com). The Mark is Nashville's only private dungeon with over 4000 sq ft of fabulous play space. Lemme tell you folks, it's gorgeous. So much so, we have to go back.
We'll be there with rocking Frolicon (www.frolicon.com) tunes (Thanks to Chasing_Amber), great food, amazing play and of course a THEME. What would a Frolicon party be without a THEME! It's an oldly but a goody.
HEAVEN and HELL!!! Be you demonic, angelic or just plain sinful, don your best wings, horns, collars and plaid skirts and join us for a frolicking good time. Maybe we can figure out another sin or two while we're there!( Read more...Collapse )

Frolicon...Here We Come
Guys and gals and everyone in between…time is running out to get the super fantastic $40 preregistration rate for Frolicon. In case you’ve forgotten, Frolicon (www.frolicon.com) is an adult oriented (21+) science fiction convention held every year over Easter Weekend (April 9-12, 2009) in Atlanta, GA. Forty dollars gets you four days of fun, play, education and parties. We will only have this rate until September 2, 2008, so go get online (http://www.frolicon.com/registration2009.html) and get registered. After then, prereg will go up. We will be at DragonCon, in Atlanta, GA over Labor Day weekend outside the Exhibitor’s Hall hamming it up and taking registrations (cash only), but why wait? You know you’ll be broke after Dragon, so do it now!
We’ve made it easier than ever for you to register with Paypal processing and non paypal credit card processing. The earlier you register, the more money you’ll have later to have fun.
With over 1200 attendees in 2008, we were bulging at the seams, so we had to upgrade our space. This year we’ll be at the Sheraton Gateway Atlanta out by the airport, and we have nearly twice the programming space. So you know what that means…over 50 kink track classes, over 40 think track classes and workshops, bigger vendor area, more night time programming in bigger spaces, more gaming, more fun, more parties, more prizes, more costumes, just more EVERYTHING.
Frolicon is a blending of artists, writers, intellectuals, leatherfolk, kinky boys and girls, fetishists of most any type, cosplayers, gamers, roleplayers, swingers, and party people who come together to form a singular convention going experience. We do what no other convention can do…we bring fandom, geekdom and kinkdom together under one roof mixing all of these interests into one BIG celebration.
Come jump in the pool and get soaking wet! Frolicon is the most fun you can have with you clothes on…or off!!!

just a quick reminder...
As you all gather up your savings for the last vacations of the summer and of course DragonCon, please don't forget to set aside a measly $40 for four nights of frolic, fun, freaky, geeky fun and games. Go now to www.frolicon.com and REGISTER for this event before you go blow your money on much much less fun! We have two easy ways to pay, through a secure online merchant and secondly through paypal. If you register through paypal you'll have to do one more step by answering an email from out registration director to get you fully in the system.
