Main Hotel Sold Out

JordanCon 9 has sold out the Marriott!!!! We just got word this morning that our block is full and so is the hotel.
Our Con Chairs will be working on identifying an overflow hotel over the next week and will hopefully have an update soon. Last year we used the Marriott Fairfield Inn and Suites which is a 9 minute walk away from the main hotel.
Please stay tuned here for information on the overflow hotel once those arrangements have been completed.

Rivets & Robots Weirdnesday: The Somewhat Big Announcement

I know folks have been waiting to see (or hear) what this year's Fandom Smackdown is going to be. There were a lot of options actually but there was one that kept coming up in conversation that seemed the right fit. Especially in terms of current fandom. So without further delay...

...but let's wait a second. No need to go so fast, right? After all the Internet has perfected the art of making the reader wait, why not tap into that. Let us talk about why we have the Fandom Smackdown in the first place.

Rivets & Robots Weirdnesday

As you may have noticed, we are starting a blog dedicated to the Science Fiction Track, known as Rivets & Robots. The idea is to connect with the SF fans who come to JordanCon and those who may not know that we in fact do have SF content at the convention. The R&R track focuses on science fiction, which is a wide area to touch on in both literature and cinema. Throw in television and art and there is a ton of material for us to tap into.

Announcement: Group Book Read 2017: Fire with Fire

Welcome to the Book Read 2017

This year as a group we will be reading our Guest of Honor, Charles E. Gannon's novel Fire with Fire. We feel this book will be a great conversation starter and allow those unfamiliar with Charles Gannon's work to become more familiar with this great author. What's more, reading Fire with Fire will help set the tone for some of panels and discussions at the convention.

Switching Over the Blog

We will be switching over the blog to here in the next day or two. Please be patient.

Meet the Artist: Amanda Makepeace

www.amandamakepeace.com

Amanda Makepeace is a JordanCon favorite who has quietly built a following here for her beautiful, evocative work. In 2015, she was awarded the Judge's Choice Award by Artist Guest of Honor Todd Lockwood and the Art Show directors for her painting "Renascentia." Amanda is an Artist, Changeling, Wanderer, Bird Whisperer and part-time Owl Queen. When she is not in the studio, she is usually reconnecting with nature and the woods that inspired her as a child (and which continue to inspire her work today). If you are coming to JordanCon this year, be sure to check out her work and say hello.
