COSine Celebrates 10th anniversary in Colorado Springs
Colorado Springs, CO, November 26, 2012 - Local science fiction convention COSine celebrates its 10th anniversary in Colorado Springs with award-winning author S.M. Stirling at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. In addition to Mr Stirling, our special guests include local author Connie Willis (winner of 11 Hugo Awards), and physicist and aerospace engineer Jordin Kare, PhD, in addition to over 20 other local authors and editors.
For the past 10 years COSine has run science fiction conventions in the Pikes Peak area, hosting such renowned authors as Joe Haldeman and L. E. Modesitt, Jr. as its Guest of Honor. It is an ideal convention for fans who want to really get to know authors, as its smaller size means fans get to ask questions that might be lost in larger conventions.
For 2013, the convention will be at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 2886 South Circle Drive, and will run from 4pm on January 25 to 3pm on January 27th. See http://firstfridayfandom.org/cosine/programming.html for specific scheduling details.
Membership for the weekend is $35, and includes admission to all panel discussions, the Arabian Nights Square Dance on Saturday night, as well as the Dealers Room, the Book Raffle and an autographing session with the authors.
For additional information or to request an interview with Mr. Stirling or the convention organizers, please contact Eric Schwartz at 720-924-NERD (720-924-6373) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
