Love that you, Pat and Jan are able to make all of these and share pictures and stories with us. How different are all of the events? I've only been to the U.S. ones and once to the U.K. con. They felt different, but the same, if that makes sense! :lol:


From my experience, and what I've heard, the UK ones are either not as hot (weather-wise) or have less cheese! :wink:

I've been to both, one a year, since 2009. They are very similar, just with some different traditions. There is the Gala, the Maskerade, the Dealer's room, Klatches, and lots of drinking at both. NADWCON has "How Discworld Changed My Life," movies, and sometimes a hospitality room; DWCON has the lounges where everyone drinks, game rooms, and Guild activities.

Ausdwcon is fairly similar too (it was originally based on the UK Con) and we will have a Gala Dinner, Maskerade, and various other bits and pieces. But hopefully there's some uniqueness as well :)

NADWCOM 2017 badges have been seen in the wild (of Pennsylvania) and announcements promised...
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

It's pronounced N'awlins actually. 8)

I'M SO STOKED!!! I've always wanted to go there, but it's just far enough to be prohibitive for a casual trip. Now I have an excuse, and I will eat much much cajun food. Crawfish boil! Gumbo! Oysters! And my favorite non-wine drink, Southern Comfort!

Oh! Oh! I wonder if the Gala would be Samedi Nuit Mort or the Genua royal ball? I have a great mask. So much awesome!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

I'll grant you that it might well be, in the colonies, but not in Lancashire.
Cool venue though, properly tired in to Discworld.

C'mon man! I go through such pains to pronounce your cities correctly, to the point that people here look at me funny because they've never heard them said correctly.

I can only say I'm thankful for "Leeds".

Yes! Just heard. New Orleans! Labor Day weekend. The Genuan Experience!
