SF CONVENTIONAL CALENDAR
by Erwin S. Strauss

November is a busy month. My picks are WindyCon, TusCon, OryCon, NovaCon, LosCon, PhilCon (where I'll be), ArmadaCon, SFContario and ChambanaCon. I'll also be at DarkoverCon, mainly for the music and old friends. Plan now for social weekends with your favorite SF authors, editors, artists, and fellow fans. For an explanation of con(vention)s, a sample of SF folksongs, and info on fanzines and clubs, send me an SASE (self-addressed, stamped #10 [business] envelope) at 10 Hill #22-L, Newark NJ 07102. The hot line is (973) 242-5999. If a machine answers (with a list of the week's cons), leave a message and I'll call back on my nickel. When writing cons, send an SASE. For free listings, tell me of your con five months out. Look for me at cons behind the Filthy Pierre badge, playing a musical keyboard. —Erwin S. Strauss
