Catherynne M. Valente, SJ Tucker, and Marian Call at StrowlerCon

StrowlerCon is a convention featuring live music, circus arts, and burlesque; the event is not particularly science fiction or fantasy themed, strictly speaking, but some of the guests do cross over into SF/F territory. Catherynne M. Valente, author of Palimpsest, the Orphan’s Tales, and The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making, will appear with musician SJ Tucker, who was the musical guest of honor at last year’s Arisia convention. Also on the guest list is Marian Call, who recorded a Firefly-themed CD, Got to Fly. The event will be held in Woburn, MA the weekend of October 8th-10th. Learn more at
