The Never-Ending, Four-Color Festival: Shows And Events


By Tom Spurgeon

* the 2018 iteration of the Press Play Fair is accepting exhibitor applications from now until July 1.

* Short Run will accept applications through July 31, and there is a travel grant. That's a show I use as an excuse to hang around in Seattle for a few days and see friends, because that is still an amazing city, but I was really taken with the quality of that show floor. I could have spent $2000.

* looks like Heroes will go June 14-16 next year.

* here's a full-blown Matt Maxwell rant about the state of shows and festivals using science fiction cons as an entry point; here's the post that inspired it.

* finally: I heard great things about all three shows that happened last weekend including that Heroes Con had one of their best Saturdays ever. For their next trick I would like all three to find their own weekends for next year; Heroes has already picked theirs, but they could get to choose first being the granddaddy.
