In charge of programming at Con-Version in 2009: Kirstin Morrell

Con-Version, held each year in Calgary, is one of my favourite science-fiction conventions.

The brilliant and beautiful Kirstin Morrell -- chair of Con-Version last year, former managing editor of Robert J. Sawyer Books and Red Deer Press, and now Communications Officer for Alberta's Informatics Circle of Research Excellence (iCORE) -- has just been named Head of Programming for next year's Con-Version, which will be held August 21-23, 2009. Guests of Honour are Terry Brooks and Tanya Huff.

It's fair to say that over the years the quality of literary programming at Con-Version has waxed and waned, but there's no doubt that it'll be first-rate at Con-Version 25 next year. I'll be attending for sure.
