I'm so excited about this year's Polaris convention in Toronto! It's going to be here really soon (July 15, 2011). I normally go for the actors (and there are a lot of them this year; Adam Baldwin, Ben Browder, Melinda Clarke, Armin Shimerman, and Meahgan Rath), but this year they have also gotten two really big Author Guests of Honour (Brandon Sanderson and Charlaine Harris). Plus there are lots of other fannish things to do and enjoy, like dances and costuming and panels and room parties.
They will be closing down their pre-registration at the end of May, so it's a great time to get a membership. Oh, Polaris is also running two contests in May where you can win free memberships. Check it out at http://polaris.tcon.ca/contests
