Meet Me in St. Louis

This weekend we're selling at Archon in the St. Louis area. It had its start as an old-school science fiction convention focusing mostly on written sf, but as the years have gone by, it's maintained its size and even grown by expanding to include various media tracks and plenty of gaming. However, it's managed to retain its fannish character, where you can mingle with the guests instead of being carefully separated from them by velvet ropes, where there are open parties in the evening.
