Tomorrow the membership price goes up to $75 per adult and $55 per youth. So register now and save!

Ways to use the cash you'll save:

  • Splurge on books, art, jewelry, or other goodies in the Dealers' Room

  • Buy an old friend a drink. Or a new friend. Or yourself

  • Make an origami dragon with it

  • Have all your friends at FOGcon autograph it

  • Spend it at one of San Francisco's peerless restaurants

  • Frame it and hang it on your wall

  • Tip grandly with it -- you'll impress your date and thrill your server

We did have a brief snafu with the PayPal button. The few who overpaid are getting a refund via PayPal. If you register today, the price really will be lower than it will be tomorrow.

At the Con
Details of the schedule are coming soon. Right now we know these events for sure:

  • Thursday, March 10, registration opens.

  • Friday, March 11, registration plus a full day of panels and workshops starting at 9AM. In the evening is the Take-off Party, a free and fabulous feast (buy your own drinks) where you can savor a variety of foods, get to know your fellow con members, and show off your favorite party clothes: jeans, tuxedos, spacesuits, historical garb, whatever fancy suit suits your fancy. Yes, the Take-Off Party is included in your membership.

  • Saturday, March 12, and Sunday March 13, more panels, readings, signings, and workshops. The Con Hospitality Suite will be open from Friday through Sunday, providing a place to relax and free munchies.

  • Sunday, March 13, after the con is over there will be a party for those staying over one more night. Traditionally known as the Dead Dog Party, ours is the Dead Frog Party. This low-key event offers a perfect opportunity to wind down, talk with someone you've missed seeing all weekend, and exchange email addresses and URLs with new friends.

More special events to come!
