Capclave is one of my favorite science fiction conventions. It’s more literary in focus and has a special emphasis on the short form, which gives it something distinctive. It’s also home to the WSFA Small Press Award, which for nine years has recognized some of the best stories being published in the small press. (Full disclosure, Clarkesworld stories have been frequently nominated, but have never won.)
I had already made plans to attend this October, when Tim Powers and Sarah Beth Durst will be the Guests of Honor, but they’ve just made sure that I’ll be back again in 2017…
2017 Capclave Guests of Honor: Ken Liu and Neil Clarke
I’ve been a keynote speaker and participant at other conventions, but this will be my first Guest of Honor appearance. I am very pleased that it will be Capclave and with Ken. (By the way, that’s the big 10th anniversary year for the Small Press Award.) I’m going to be looking forward to this for a while.
A big thank you to WSFA and Capclave 2017 Chair Elizabeth Twitchell.
