JordanCon will enter an emergency bid to host DeepSouthCon in 2016. This follows last month’s cancellation of the previously scheduled ABC DSC, which would have taken place in Atlanta next May.
DeepSouthCon (DSC) is a traveling science fiction fan convention held in the southeastern United States, and is the oldest literary convention in the region. DSC sponsors the Phoenix and Rebel awards.
Site selection ordinarily takes place two years in advance.
The next DSC will be Contraflow V/DeepSouthCon 53 over the October 2-4 weekend.
JordanCon hosted DeepSouthCon 51, during which the Phoenix was awarded to Robert Jordan, and the Rebel was awarded to Regina Kirby and M. Lee Rogers.
JordanCon 8 will take place on April 22-24, 2016, at the Atlanta Marriot Perimeter Center in Atlanta, Georgia with Toastmaster John Strangeway. Guests of Honor will be author Catherine Asaro and artist John Picacio.
