LoneStarCon 2, the 1997 Worldcon: Program Questionnaire Cover Letter


Although it's still winter and Worldcon seems far away, it's time to plant the seeds for a bountiful end-of-summer harvest. On Labor Day weekend Texas will host the World Science Fiction Convention for the first time ever. We're beginning to organize the program and we need your help.
San Antonio is a popular travel city. Besides Worldcon, you'll have the opportunity to visit the Alamo and other historic missions, the lovely Brackenridge Zoo, Fiesta Texas theme park, SeaWorld and our own LSC2 Chili Cook-Off! Our convention is set on the Riverwalk, an exciting collection of shops and restaurants, including the Riverwalk Mall, all a cool 10 degrees below sidewalk level. Our convention center and hotels are in a tight cluster for easy walking.
The rewards and benefits for the science fiction professional attending Worldcon are many:
  • Meet your fans, old and new
  • Get feedback on your work
  • Network with publishers, editor, art directors
  • Swap trade secrets with your peers
  • Create sales opportunities for your work
We promise that the amount of time you may spend in programming will be a small part of your weekend, and there'll be plenty of time for you to enjoy the convention and the city. As with most North American Worldcons, you'll need to have a membership in order to participate in programming. We'll make every effort to reimburse the membership of those who are active contributors.
We hope you'll take the time to fill out the enclosed questionnaire and return it to us. We also hope you'll plant the chili pepper seeds and think about how much fun you'll have in San Antonio.
