Fangs, Fur and Fey Descend on Tulsa

Fangs, Fur and Fey, the largest online community of published urban, young adult and contemporary fantasy and paranormal romance writers, teams up with the Conestoga Sci-fi/Fantasy Convention to present this year's "Con Within a Con", commencing July 25th at the Tulsa Radisson Hotel and Conference Center. Fans of vamps, ghouls, werewolves, demons, faeries and a legion of other fantasy creatures will be in heaven...or hell, depending.

The online community's founders (and New York Times bestselling authors) Melissa Marr and Jeaniene Frost, along with Caitlin Kittredge (Night Life) and Mark Del Franco (Unquiet Dreams) will be joined by Special Guest Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Literary Agency and a slew of authors representing some of the best fiction this innovative genre has to offer. In addition, the Guest of Honor at Conestoga 12 will be the wildly popular Diana Gabaldon, author of the Outlander series.

The Fangs, Fur and Fey "mini-con" at Conestoga 12 promises to be the biggest urban fantasy event for fans and aspiring writers in the region. Among activities and panels planned are author speed-dating (interrogate authors one-on-one!), Thrust and Parry Theater (action scenes play out live before your very eyes), readings, signings, and discussions of world building, creatures, dark fantasy and the ever-elusive comic relief.

Rachel Vater will be unable to attend Conestoga this year. Miriam Kriss from the Irene Goodman Agency will have to carry the torch for Urban Fantasy Agents everwhere.

Maggie Stiefvater has had to cancel due to a scheduling conflict.
