If you live near Collinsville, Illinois and are a science fiction fan, come on out to the North American Science Fiction Convention which is also Archon. It’s at the Collinsville Convention Center and runs August 2nd through 5th.
While this is not really a dog event, there are always lots of dog and cat lovers among the authors. And if you like cat collectibles, you’ll find things wou won’t see in most pet stores.
Hope to see you there!
