Copyright 2014 by Paula S. Jordan

I’m starting off a pair of posts on ConCarolinas with photos and brief peaks at some of this year’s outstanding guests, performers, and panelists:

25 - George R. R. Martin 2George R.R. Martin signed autographs, discussed his Wild Card series, read from his new novel Winds of Winter and answered 77 - David Weber 3questions for what often seemed like mile-long lines of patient devotees, and occasionally held court in the hotel’s University Cafe.  David Webber also signed and read for large numbers of fans, discussed his famed Honor Harrington series, and contributed comments, answers, insights, and stories on warfare and the military.

07 - Danny Birt Filk Concert 3Danny Birt provided informal evening filk singing as well as concerts and panel appearances on musical matters.  Jonah Knight performed his own musical brand of creepy and/or steam punk and/or fantasy sub-genres in concerts throughout the weekend.

31 - Jonah Knight 3






Panels discussed a wide variety of SF/F/science/writing and related topics, including this one titled “Breakfast and Books” with, with Samule Montgomery-Blinn, Tera Fulbright, Janine K. Spendlove, Stuart Jaffe and Amy H. Sturgis.

48 - Breakfast and Books 4

In a few days,  ConCarolinas 2014 Part 2, much more on fascinating tidbits of science, writing, and genre interest heard in panels and other discussions over the weekend. Plus a full report om Balticon 2014.
