Actually, it was just an unforeseen scheduling conflict (but isn’t our headline more interesting?).
We regretfully announce that Stephen Bissette will not be able to join us as a Legend this summer at Necon 35, as he has a commitment which requires him to travel to New Zealand and the dates now overlap. Barring any unexpected conflicts or trips halfway around the world, we anticipate Stephen will celebrate his long-overdue distinction as a Necon Legend next year.
Fortunately for all of us, another Neconer who is long-overdue for this honor has graciously agreed to turn these lemons into lemonade. Therefore, it is our pleasure to announce that author JAMES A. MOORE will officially be recognized as a Necon Legend this year at Necon 35 (although let’s face it, he’s been “unofficially recognized” as one for years!). For more on Jim, and Necon 35’s entire dais of Guests, PLEASE CLICK HERE.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this change to our dais may have caused. Stephen, safe travels and we look forward to seeing you next year; Jim, thank you for accepting our invitation on such short notice!
