Go Filk Yourself, At FenCon
Dallas has seen more than its share of conventions this year, with something for almost every geeky interest there is. For the literary nerd who scoffs at A-Kon and those other low-brow affairs, there is FenCon, which will be in Dallas Friday through Sunday. FenCon caters to the fans (or fens in this case) of Science Fiction and Fantasy literature with a little filk music thrown in for good measure. For those who have not enjoyed a good filking, think fusion of traditional folk music and all topics fantasy or sci-fi. This year’s guests include Hugo Award-winning author C.J. Cherryh, Eisner Award-winning author Peter David and astronaut Stanley G. Love. FenCon will be held at The Crowne Plaza North Dallas (14315 Midway Road). Weekend tickets start at $45.
