Hic Sunt Dracones
edited by Clare McBride
…what do you do for the Con that has everything for its twenty-fifth outing? Try to give it back the immense blessings it has given you. The essays in this short anthology celebrate the community, passion, and truly unique fun that Dragon*Con gives to its guests every year, from the perspective of staff, seasoned veterans, and complete newbies. We all hope that reading this anthology will give you a taste of just what it’s like during those fantastic four days at Dragon*Con, and maybe even entice you to join us for the big two-five in September.
I got the idea for this anthology after Dragon*Con last year sitting in my Econ class. (I am truly getting the most out of my education.) I then sighed about how I would never be able to do it, until I remembered—we’re fans. We can basically do anything we set our minds to. Going from that idea to this final product has been a remarkably fulfilling and wonderful experience, and I couldn’t have done it without my fabulous contributors and their equally fabulous stories—Lindsay Gordon, Othella Morris, Nadine Palmer, Kevin Stallard, and Michael J. Winegar.
Happy twentieth-fifth, Dragon*Con. We hope you like it.
