As you science fiction and fantasy fans know, Sasquan is the 2015 World Science Fiction Convention, aka “Worldcon,” and this year it’s going to be held August 19-23. This annual gathering of sci-fi and fantasy fans celebrates the best works in the speculative fiction field. Authors, editors, publishers, artists, and other creators participate in panels, readings, autograph sessions, games…and just about everything else you can imagine happening when you get wildly creative individuals together for the weekend! So, we simply couldn’t miss it.
And don’t think we’re simply sitting on the sidelines. Oh no.
Skyboat will have a DEALER’S TABLE in the Dealer room, located in Hall A of the Riverside Exhibition Hall in the Spokane Convention Center.
Audiobooks available on CD or digital download (with pretty postcards by downpour.com!)
And that’s not all.
