Ad-Astra is a ReaderCon in Toronto this weekend with a ton of guests, including Eric Flint and Robert J. Sawyer. Besides all the usual events, they will also be running the competition for AD ASTRA’S NEXT TOP ZOMBIE!!!! A bit to the west (but still in Toronto) is another Canadian gathering at FilkOntario, where the inductions into the Filk Hall of Fame will be held.

RavenCon 2010 takes place in Richmond, VA, and celebrates all things Edgar Allen Poe-ish. As well as a lot of other stuff, since this is a general con; check out their schedule of programs. While over in Fargo, Core Con takes place featuring gaming, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Bushido, and Cosplay.
