MisCon 34 Guests of Honor
- Charlaine Harris, Author GoH
Charlaine Harris has been a published writer for over thirty-five years. She has written conventional mysteries, hard-edged mysteries, urban fantasy, and science fiction.
Her Sookie Stackhouse books were adapted to the HBO series True Blood.
Her series "Midnight, Texas" was adapted to the NBC show of the same name. It follows the lives of the strange inhabitants of a small town in the middle of nowhere, where the concept of normal is relative.

Jim enjoys fencing, singing, bad science fiction movies and live-action gaming. He lives in Missouri with his wife, son, and a vicious guard dog.
- Patricia Briggs, Special GoH
Patty writes books. You can find a complete list of titles elsewhere. You probably don't really care where she was born [Butte, MT] or what her favorite animal is [horse]. The list of jobs she's held over the years doesn't tell you as much about Patty as it does about which jobs were available at various times in our past. I could fill pages with various facts and tallies that detail the events of her life. Instead, I'd like to tell you a bit about who she is.

Our theme changes every year. The yearly theme influences panel topics, invited guests, decoration, and sometimes convention-wide events. We encourage guests, members, and attendees to take each year's theme to heart, and let it influence your thoughts of, and preparation for, MisCon each year.
MisCon sweeps in once a year in the spring, lasts a few days, then vanishes on the day of remembrance, leaving no trace.
It's ephemeral as a rainstorm.
It's been plagued by zombies, became a ruined wasteland, ascended to the future, lost all its heroes, and leveled up. It's been filled with doors to many places and times. Once it became a fairy tale and attracted none other than George R.R. Martin, one of the greatest wizards of our age.
This year it's changing again . . .
