Artist Guest of Honor: Dean Morrissey
Fan Guest of Honor: Kelly Persons

ArmadilloCon is a literary science-fiction convention held annually in Austin, with several hundred attendees. The primary focus of ArmadilloCon is literary science fiction, but that's not all we do -- we also pay attention to art, animation, science, media, and gaming. Every year, dozens of professional writers, artists and editors attend the convention. Sometimes they come to make deals, but more often they come to have fun! (Source: ArmadilloCon 30)

Otakon - August 8-10, 2008 - Baltimore, MD by ( August 2008 / ) - About Otakon: Otakon is the convention of the otaku generation: by fans, for fans; and we're back for our 15th year! Join thousands of your fellow fans as we descend on Baltimore to celebrate all anime, manga, and all facets of Asian pop culture!

Ever since 1999, we've taken over a sizable chunk of Baltimore's Inner Harbor for a 3-day festival celebrating the pop culture that's brought us everything from Astroboy to Yu-Gi-Oh, from the Seven Samurai to Spirited Away.

We can't wait to see you there! (Source: )
