Quick question, have you ever heard of "The Dragonriders of Pern"?
If so, you might be interested in the news that Rich just emailed me about. It seems that we have another guest coming in to LibertyCon this year, Mr. Todd McCaffrey!
I don't know how you COULDN'T know about Todd, but just in case here you go: He started co-authoring Pern books with his mother (Anne McCaffrey) in 2003 with Dragon's Kin. Since then he has written three solo Pern novels, and has co-authored an additional four with his mother (five including Dragon's Kin).
But that's not the only thing that you might know Todd from. He's also written plenty of non-Pern related works, including quite a few short stories in various "Bolo" collections as well as a "Combat Command" book set in David Drake's Hammer's Slammers universe!
You can check out more information about him on his website at http://pernhome.com/tjm/, where you'll see the tagline "Todd McCaffrey: Author, Artist, Pilot, Geek".
Sounds like a great addition to me, folks!
Also you might want to check your bank balances. Todd, like some of our other author guests, has graciously said that he would donate an upcoming 'Tuckerization' to our Charity Auction. He apparently has a new SF (Non-Pern) book that he's working on that he should be able to slot YOU into as a character.
I'll be working on getting a page on the website to list our Charity Auction items which will include this, a David B. Coe 'Workshop/Manuscript Review', Tuckerizations from other authors, original paintings, and the list could keep going... but it will all be up on the website before the convention. It's for a great cause, after all!
