What is a fan conference or fan con? This week Peggy and Larry talk about fan cons and one of the great ones, the MidSouthCon 30 – held for the past 30 years in Memphis, Tn. It is one of the best ones we have attended.
Peggy and Larry talk about the differences between a fan con and a writer’s conference. They discuss the importance of attending a fan con if you are a sci fi, thriller, or horror writer.
Peggy gives the names of some popular cons.

Here’s a link to a list of niche fan cons:
