"Capclave will restore your faith in science fiction and cure
diseases you're not even aware you have."
-- Patrick Nielsen Hayden
Many thanks to those who made Capclave 2006 such a success, especially Stan Robinson and Tom Whitmore.
We're looking forward to seeing you all next year.
"I have not had as much fun at a convention as I did at Capclave
last year, than I've had since Readercon in 2003."
Capclave is a small relaxed literary convention with a program that usually
focuses on the short fiction form. Our Guests of Honor and other notable
authors, editors, artists, and fans will explore the creation and enjoyment
of fantasy and science fiction genre stories.
Past Capclaves have hosted discussions with authors and fans; readings
by authors; a dealer's room with books, magazines, artwork, crafts,
and other science fiction and fantasy related items; exhibits by
artists; space science presentations from NASA; a hospitality suite;
room parties; interesting conversations with other fans and professionals;
and a relaxed atmosphere for visiting old friends and meeting new
This year, Capclave returns to the Hilton Silver Spring, which
was the home for Capclave 2002, 2003, and 2005. The Hilton is easy
to reach from the Capital Beltway and is a few blocks from the Silver
Spring Metro stations.
