For the last several years, BuNine has been privileged to have a weekend of David Weber’s time to work with him on different aspects relating to the Honorverse. Sometimes we had specific questions, sometimes we just got to sit and listen to David in “storyteller mode.” No matter what, we had a great time with good friends. Jokingly, someone called the annual meeting HonorCon, and the name stuck.
Last year, Toni Weisskopf (David’s editor at Baen) mentioned that it would be wonderful if the Honorverse had a Con of its own. With House of Steel due out in May 2013, and 2013 being the twentieth anniversary of On Basilisk Station’s publication and the birthday of the Honorverse, 2013 seemed like a natural time to have an HonorCon that would be open to everyone. After volunteering a few hardy souls who were experienced in Con organization, we were off and running!
HonorCon 2013 is scheduled for November 8, 9 and 10th, in Greenville, SC. We hope that everyone can share in the camaraderie and fellowship that we have enjoyed these last five years. We are planning a family friendly environment that will appeal to fans of all ages, with tracks relating to everything from writing to tech to presentations by TRMN, the official fan club.

UPDATE: DUE TO NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE HOTEL, THE DATE FOR HONORCON HAS CHANGED TO NOVEMBER 1, 2, and 3rd. THANK YOU!!
