1632 MiniCon at WesterCon 72
July 4 - July 7
The 1632 Minicon celebrates Eric Flint’s 1632 series, about the town of Grantville, West Virginia, transported from the year 2000 to Thuringia, Germany of 1631—that’s right, while the Thirty Years War is raging.
The Minicon provides a venue for the many collaborators and fans of the 1632 universe to get together. Editors Walt Boyes and Bjorn Hasseler will talk about how to write for the online magazine Grantville Gazette, a SFWA pro venue set in and relating to the 1632 universe. Eric, Walt, and Joy Ward will talk about Eric Flint’s Ring of Fire Press.
Other planned Minicon events include a mass autographing session and a dedicated program track featuring Eric Flint and other 1632 universe authors. These will include the famous Weird Tech panel (moderated by Rick Boatright) and Eric’s Snerking the Plots presentation (where he tells you what he has in mind for the future of the series)! If you’re a fan, or a prospective author, this is a can’t-miss event.
