Mythcon 50 HOUSING UPDATE

We have some fairly significant updates to the Mythcon 50 Room & Board page, making an easy way for people who really want or need a room with a private bathroom to have a room with a private bathroom. It is NOT in the same dorm, so you must be willing to walk about a block-and-a-half to Cuicacalli and the Garden cafeteria where Mythcon 50 breakfasts and dinners (except for the banquet) will be served - and you'll pay more. Read the details and check out the maps on the Mythcon 50 Room & Board page.

For those who are staying off campus or are commuting to Mythcon 50, we also now offer a "commuter dinners package" - this includes Friday and Saturday night dinner in the Garden cafeteria as well as the Sunday night banquet. Folks who only want Friday or Saturday dinner will be able to pay by credit card at the check-in desk in the Garden cafeteria, and stand-alone banquet tickets are for sale for anyone who is not staying on campus and hasn't bought the commuter dinners package.

Lunches are not included in the Mythcon 50 Room & Board package.

REMINDER: deadline for buying room & board packages, banquet tickets, commuter dinner packages, and parking permits is JULY 15 - we cannot guarantee that we can provide the services after that date. All of these can be purchased from the Room & Board page.

Tolkien At Home - 1992 Special J.R.R. Tolkien Centennial Issue of Mythlore

Time marches on and Mythlore is now up to #134 but, back in 1992, shortly before the Tolkien Centenary Conference (a glorious week-long event held at Keble College in Oxford, England, and sponsored jointly by the Tolkien Society and the Mythopoeic Society), Mythlore released the 1992 Special J.R.R. Tolkien Centennial Issue of Mythlore with this beautiful color cover by BG Callahan.

The 79-page issue can be purchased on our website here as a photocopy or in digital form; individual articles are available for download here, at the Mythopoeic Society's digital archive at SWOSU.

There is also an archive of Mythlore cover art which is wonderful to view online.

Mythcon 50 PR#1 Available

The first Progress Report for Mythcon 50 is now available online, both as a webpage and as a downloadable PDF. This will also be emailed to members of the conference.

Additionally, Mythcon 50 Room & Board packages are now available for sale! 

If you haven't joined the conference, we encourage you to join us in San Diego, August 2-5, 2019. Please note: the Council of Stewards has decided that non-Society members will receive membership in the Society for the year of the Mythcon they join. We've always encouraged folks to join the Society and then join Mythcon at the MythSoc members' rate - but now we save you that extra step. Please indicate whether or not you want to be listed in Mything Persons, the Society's membership directory.

Finally, if you serve on the Mythopoeic Awards committee(s), please remember the DEADLINE for nominations is February 16 ...which is coming right up! Read the initial blog post here, for details.
