Badass Ladies of Sci-Fi

Bubonicon 47

Bubonicon 47

This year, Bubonicon 47, the venerable Sci-Fi and Fantasy convention, will be celebrating "Women of Wonder," a fact made even more poignant in the wake of the "Sad Puppies" vote stuffing controversy at last week's Hugo Awards. All weekend long, you can expect to find memorabilia auctions, genre panel talks, costume contests and science-fiction film showings as well as a veritable smorgasbord of local and national Sci-Fi/Fantasy authors to sign your books ... Oh, and it looks like an upstart writer named George R. R. Martin will be doing a reading! You should check him out; something tells us that young man is going places. The convention starts Friday, Aug. 28, at 4pm at the Albuquerque Marriott Uptown (2101 Louisiana NE) and continues through Sunday, Aug. 30. Grab a full weekend pass at the door for $45 or just pay a fraction of that price for day passes. For more details go to bubonicon.com.
