Congratulations, Detcon 1

The Detroit in 2014 bid won the NASFiC site selection vote 231-210; they were running against Phoenix.

Detcon 1 will be held July 17-20, 2014 at the Detroit Marriott Renaissance Center.

Detcon1 Guests of Honor

Steven Barnes

Hugo Award-nominated author and Emmy-winning screenwriter

John Picacio
Hugo and World Fantasy Award winning illustrator

Bernadette Bosky, Arthur D. Hlavaty and Kevin J. Maroney
A long-term triad marriage, combining fan, academic, and pro activity in F/SF.

Bill and Brenda Sutton
2001 Filk Hall of Fame Inductees

Plus, ConChairs Emeritus

Roger Sims & Fred Prophet

Co-chairs of Detention, the 17th Worldcon, held in Detroit, MI in 1959

Personal note: My 60th b'day is July 21st. This born-in-Michigan girl will be at Detcon 1, and most likely inclined to some sort of party there. Maybe cake after midnight at the Dead Dog Party (or a Sunday night run to Battle Creek for fresh Sweetwater's Donuts to serve instead).

Congratulations to you, Bernadette, and Kevin! The entire GoH slate is utterly splendid, but I'm of course extra happy to see the three of you on it.
