MidSouthCon 32 is Happening NOW

While the Opening Ceremonies will not take place until later today, MidSouthCon 32 is happening now. At 2pm the Art Show will open, other rooms are already open and Registration is in full swing.

The Darrell Awards and MidSouthCon have a common parent — the late, lamented Memphis SF Association, which gave birth to both and which folded several years ago. Also, MidSouthCon has been the single largest sponsor of the Darrell Awards since day one, providing the funding needed to pay for the plaques as well as an excellent event at which to present them. For most of the years that the Darrell Awards have been presented, we have had a panel about them and about our honored authors as part of the programming at the con.

And there is the fact that members of the Jury have served on the ConComm or the Board of Directors of MidSouthCon (or both) from the very beginning of these Awards.

So, we the Jury have reason to celebrate whenever another MidSouthCon rolls around.

Please join us at the Convention, going on from now until Sunday afternoon. And be sure to stop by Promenade 2 at 3pm on Saturday for the Darrell Awards Panel — and the Banquet (wherever it is held) at 5pm for the Presentation of the 2014 Darrell Awards.

About Darrell Awards

The Darrell Awards are presented annually in support of Midsouth Literacy by recognizing the best published Science Fiction, Fantasy and/or Horror in Short Story, Novella, Novel, Young Adult and Other Media formats. Our related Dal Coger Memorial Hall of Fame Award is given for an author who has made exceptional contributions to Midsouth Literacy by having published a substantial body of work that is or would have been eligible for the Darrell Award. The Darrell Awards and the Coger Hall of Fame award are presented at MidSouthCon, held in March of each year in the Memphis, Tennessee area.
