|We doubt even the most
hardiest Dragon*Con attendee can keep up with all the wild and crazy events and fandom that
hits the Atlanta area every year. From huge gaming events to the parade, gazing at the
items in the Dragon*Con shop (we bought a shot glass, yay!), and sitting down to some
delightful Dragon*Con bards, the weekend seemed almost as big as a week! Believe me, I
wouldn't be surprised if corrections were emailed for missing things! Dragon*Con was
just so big and it's scheduled to get even bigger with surging popularity with all the science
fiction and fantasy fandom that grows every year. Here's to another year of Dragon*Con
splendor and we'll be there!
Panels and Discussions are some of the biggest draws at Dragon*Con, and
numerous tracks this year included: American SF Media, Anime Programming, British SF Media, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Comics Programming, Electronic Frontiers Forum, Filk Singing, Gothic Journeys, Independent Film, Robotics Programming, Science Fiction Classics, Space & Science, Star Trek: TrekTrak, Star Wars: Matters of the Force, Tolkien's Middle-earth, The North American Tribe, Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time, Weyrfest, Writers' Track, X-Track, and Young Adult Literature.
Art Show and Art Auctions: Think you had your fill of the literature and electronics explosions in the writers and robotics areas? Some of the artistic features could be found in the big Dragon*Con Art Show and Exhibits area located in the Marriott Marquis Hotel where attendees could bid on their favorite masterpieces. Those with a yearning to be more expressive about their art could also contribute pieces into the Art Show and hopefully make a few bucks or more. And it doesn't hurt to keep a lookout for prospective buyers who happen to be in the industry looking for an experienced artist to hire.
