This will be a party to promote the upcoming 2023 Worldcon, to be held in Chengdu, China, in 2023. All are welcome, and we look forward to being able to answer questions people may have about the upcoming Worldcon as well as giving you a taste of Chengdu! For further questions or more information about us, feel free to stop by our tables in the exhibit hall.

DisCon III Thank You Party
DisCon III will be hosting the DisCon III Thank You Party at Chicon. We’re so grateful to the fans who attended, both in person and virtually, and all the staff and volunteers who made the 79th Worldcon a great success against seemingly impossible odds! The party will be held on Friday, September 2, starting at 8:00 pm, in Suite 3474 in the East Tower of the Hyatt Regency (the “Monarch Suite” — ooh! fancy!). In addition to good food and company, we’ll be giving away all that remains of our DisCon III merchandise, leftover souvenir books, and more!

Michael Haynes At the Intersection of Love and Death Release Party
Room 3181 – Friday Evening (9 to 11 pm). Michael Haynes will be celebrating the release of his debut short-fiction collection, At the Intersection of Love and Death, with a party in Room 3181 from 9 to 11 PM. His collection includes over two dozen stories spanning the speculative fiction genres, dealing with love, death, and the places where those experiences intersect. There will be whiskey (since characters in several of his stories drink whiskey), other beverages, and light munchies (none of which show up in his stories which calls into question his rationale for the whiskey).

Join us at the Tune in Tomorrow book release party! Randee Dawn‘s debut “funny as hell” novel from Rebellion/Solaris (Available now)
Millennium Suite (Party Floor) – Saturday, Sept. 3 from 7pm – Whenever we run out of cake. There will be snacks, drinks, raffles and … did we mention CAKE?
