The transition from "EF 17 is over" to "EF 18 is coming up" is progressing slowly but surely, and just today, cheetah_spotty announced the Guest of Honor for this year: Peter S. Beagle, a prolific writer who's penned many other novels and stories and who's perhaps best-known for The Last Unicorn.

Also, the new EF website was launched today! And the theme this year is Ancient Rome, so look forward to a lot of circenses at the con (and hopefully some panem, too). ^.~

Registration isn't open yet, but based on the last years' experiences, it shouldn't be that much longer. As mssithy points out, it actually IS open now at the time of this edit, although you wouldn't be able to tell by looking at the EF website's front page. Be that as it may, though, go ahead and register. :)

Oooh, thanks for the pointer! :D

(Also, wow, how'd I not notice that? Oh, right, I know — because the news box on the website does not actually say that registration is open now. Come on, folks.)

Gosh, really, it's not on there? I got it from Twitter too. I just registered with Okill, so hopefully I'll see you there :)

Yeah, it doesn't say so as far as I can tell — maybe I'm blind, but the only thing I can see is an older news item from December about the registration start date. If you click through there, you'll find it's indeed today, but that's all. Perhaps the putting-up of the new website is itself supposed to be the announcement that registration is open.

But I just registered (and wow, I'm #558 already), so yes, see you both there! ^.^

Oooh for sure :) Don't be afraid to poke me if you see me in suit or out...I am REALLY bad at remembering faces, so I usually ask people to just poke me x) (It's nothing personal, I don't know why I have that problem.)
I also really like to talk about everything and anything so uhm, that'll be fun :p I'm happy to talk in suit too so

OK, I'll be sure to. ^^ And that's great; I'm not always great at making conversation, but I enjoy it, even if I don't have much to say myself on occasion. (Which, fortunately, doesn't happen that much anymore.)

I am lucky I have an unusual job, it gets people talking especially with this year's EF theme :)
TBH, I am sort of at a loss what to do at the con other than suiting and chatting with people...but I think I shall be busy with all of that anyway.

Mmm, there's always a lot of events at the con — SIGs and panels, stage events and more, so my problem usually is that I have more I want to do/attend than I have time for. :) Doubly so when you want to add some time to eat, sleep, and just socialize, as well as non-furry things like going to the hotel's pool.

It'll be lots of fun, and you won't be bored, I'm sure. ^.^
