I don't know where else to post this!! [Jul. 7th, 2006|01:36 pm]
Keycon: Manitoba Sci-Fi Convention

Hey everyone..and anyone!
I have recently unearthed a small pile of magic cards in my home. I don't know how to play. so I was wondering if there was someone here who would be interested in buying them off me? I have a total of 69 cards, none are doubles and I can list a few of them off:

Life tap
energy tap
power sink
puppet master
fountain of youth
cuombajj witches
samite healer
elvish scout, hunter, fyndhorn elves
circle of protection: white, black, red, green

I don't know the value of these, but they're in decent condition and none of the corners are bent up. If anyone is interested, drop me a line on my LJ.

Anyone living in Winnipeg winning this auction would of course have the option of picking it up from me instead of paying for shipping.

Keycon Chapbook - on sale in McNalley's [Mar. 11th, 2006|05:23 pm]
Keycon: Manitoba Sci-Fi Convention

The Keycon Chapbook is now on the shelves of McNalley's at Grant Park Mall.

Cover price is $10

The chapbook has been created from 8.5 x 11" pages folded in half and stapled. It is 40 pages, contains 4 original stories, each with it's own original illustration. It has a color cover printed on glossy card stock with an absolutely gorgeous illustration by Terrakian Wintermoon.

All four authors have advised me they are buying memberships and will be at the convention.

I am attempting to get the chapbook in as many Winnipeg stores as possible. It will soon be available for purchase online through Ebay. If you are interested in buying one you can also contact me directly at turtle@mts.net

Please support Keycon as well as the local authors and artists who have made this beautiful book possible!

So, what happened to Dean Haglund? [Jan. 5th, 2006|07:48 pm]
Keycon: Manitoba Sci-Fi Convention
Looks like he's been replaced by yet another no name-guest.
Yet another lack-luster keycon huh? Looks like I'll be giving this one a huge miss too.

Hello! [Dec. 10th, 2005|12:57 am]
Keycon: Manitoba Sci-Fi Convention

I just found this!

Wow! I wish I'd known this existed!

Heather told Brian that there was a Keycon lj community so I went looking for it and sure enough, it's named Keycon (go figure).

This is Daria. I'm publications for Keycon 2006. I am going to be running the Sleeping Dragon hospitality suite (the gaming one with the soup) again this year. I'm also running the short story contest. (Deadline is January 15th - please encourage anyone you know who writes to submit.)

If anyone wants any info - ask me. I'm the gf of one of the Con chairs and I work two cubicles down from the webmonkeys so I can generally get you answers pretty quick.

Do I know any of you? I don't recognize many of the screen names.
