    When will registration function work? Left a message 2 (?) weeks ago.

    Also, group rate code for Omni room, assuming block is open?

    • ArmadilloCon 40 Webmaster says:

      The Membership/Registration page works now. Sorry for the inconvenience. The reservation link on our Hotel page automatically applies the group rate code.

  2. Howdy do. My name is Shane Lassetter and I write books. I live in Lake Jackson, TX. and this would be ideal for me. I was wondering how I can get involved with Armadillocon this year. I would like to have a booth. Please email me a response. Thank you.

    It would be helpful if you had a “Contact Us” area so we could send you emails or use this type of form.

    As it is, I had to search for this “Leave a Reply” area.

    $45 is a lot of money to spend without knowing what the programs will be. When will those be available to see?

    Can I pay the $45 and then get a refund should the events not be to my liking?

    Hi there,

    I’ve been published under several names, and under the name Jimmy Misfit, I will have a comic dystopia collection titled The Silliest Stories Out of Bustleburg: America’s Worst City come out in July from JMS Books. I’d be interested in speaking on panels if you’d be interested in having me. Please let me know if you have questions or if there are specific requirements. Thanks so much for your time! David

    Is there a special rate for the hotel this year? Usually by this time there is a code to make your hotel reservations or a way to link to the reservations page that already has that code entered. I don’t see that or any contacts page to directly email the person in charge of the hotel.

      There is a special convention rate. The reservation link on our Hotel page automatically applies the rate code.

  6. I would like to submit a proposal for a presentation, “From Texas to the Moon with John Leonard Riddell” about the first working scientist to publish a science fiction story. I just delivered a version of this earlier this month in Dallas at the World’s Fair of Money of the American Numismatic Society. (Riddell was also the chief melter at the New Orleans Mint.) I have new artwork for this coming from Brad Foster. Kurt Baty saw that presentation and can give you feedback on my content and style.

    I tried to buy a membership but the “add to cart” button doesn’t work. Click it and nothing happens. This is using Firefox on a Win7 platform.

  8. Jonathan Lindquist says:

    Hello! I’m trying to purchase a badge and the checkout doesn’t seem to be working. Can someone help?

  9. Casey Brandt says:

    The Membership/Registration link seems o be disabled or broken. I’d love to get registered if it’s possible!

    Best regards,

    Your membership/registration page doesn’t work.

  11. I am interested in being a guest at Armadillocon 40. I’ve been a guest in the past, and also worked with the writer’s workshop. To whom would I speak about being a guest at this event?

      Thanks for your interest in being a program participant this year! I’m forwarding your info to our programming head who’ll get back to you soon.

  12. Steve Palmer says:

    Are there going to be panel discussions or other events? If so, where can I find a schedule?

  13. Cedar Erwinloomis says:

    Will the program be published at some point? I need to plan my schedule and coordinate with my fellow attendees, but I’m running out of time. There isn’t even a ‘not available yet’ link! And the con starts in less than a week! Usually it’s up at least a week ahead of time. Can I help? This was also the only place I could find where it was even possible to leave a comment.
