Guess what, everyone! Our host hotel is completely sold out for Friday and Saturday nights! Thursday night and Sunday nights are still available to anyone who wants to book those.
Announcing a change in plans for JordanCon 8! Due to personal reasons, John Strangeway will not be able to join us as Toastmaster this year. We know you were looking forward to him, but we have an excellent alternate in store for you who we know you will love just as much.
Great news, everyone! We are pleased to announce that Jason Denzel, founder of popular Wheel of Time site Dragonmount and author of the exciting new fantasy trilogy Mystic, will officially be an attending guest at JordanCon 8.
If you missed him on his recent book tour, be sure to bring your copy of Mystic to JordanCon to get it signed!
We know you are all busy purchasing your JordanCon badges (before the prices go up on January 3rd) and making your hotel reservations, and so some of you may have noticed that the Marriott has a new parking fee this year. This fee does NOT apply to JordanCon members.
JordanCon, host of DeepSouthCon 54, has donated two 2016 memberships to Con or Bust, a not-for-profit organization whose mission it is to increase diversity at Science Fiction and Fantasy conventions by helping non-white individuals obtain memberships and funds to attend. Since 2009, they have raised over $54,000 through donations and auctions, allowing nearly 200 people to attend dozens of different conventions.
We are pleased to announce that JordanCon 8 has won the bid to host DeepSouthCon 54! JordanCon will also be administering the site selection for DSC 56.
In addition to JordanCon programming, the convention will feature a DeepSouthCon track, a Hearts tournament, the annual meeting of the Southern Fandom Confederation, and presentation of the Rebel & Phoenix awards for 2016.
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.
