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.
DeepSouthCon is a traveling science fiction fan convention that travels the southeastern United States. It has the distinction of being the oldest literary convention in the region, and sponsors the Phoenix and Rebel awards.
JordanCon had the honor of hosting DeepSouthCon #51, during which the Phoenix was awarded to Robert Jordan, and the Rebel was awarded to Regina Kirby & M. Lee Rogers. JordanCon 8 will take place on April 22-24, 2016, at the Atlanta Marriott Perimeter Center in Atlanta, Georgia with Toastmaster John Strangeway. Guests of Honor will be author Catherine Asaro and artist John Picacio.
