I just got this email from Rich, thought you guys might like to know.
Special Announcement: Got a phone call the other day from Timothy Zahn saying "Is it okay if I come to LC27 and just hang out?" Sooooo, Tim Zahn will be back for LibertyCon 27! Tim is a long time friend of LibertyCon (LC) going back to Liberty's humble beginnings. At past LibertyCons he has been LGOH (LC 10), Special GOH (LC 4 and 18), Master of Ceremonies (LC 14 and 20), and the 25th Anniversary LGOH. For those who don't know him, Tim is a writer of science fiction short stories and novels. His novella Cascade Point won the 1984 Hugo award. He is the author of eight Star Wars Expanded Universe novels, including six novels featuring Grand Admiral Thrawn: the Thrawn Trilogy, Hand of Thrawn duology, and Outbound Flight. The Thrawn trilogy marked a revival in the fortunes of the Star Wars franchise, bringing it widespread attention for the first time in years; all three Thrawn-trilogy novels made the New York Times best-seller lists, and set the stage and tone for most of the franchise's Expanded-Universe content. While many of Zahn's characters have been embraced by franchise writers and readers, some still appearing in novels written seventeen years later, Thrawn has been particularly influential. Zahn also wrote the young adult Dragonback series and the popular Conquerors' Trilogy. So please come and enjoy the pleasure of his company at LC27!
