Shore Leave 42 - For Real This Year?

Some of you may know that I've attended the Shore Leave Star Trek / Sci-Fi convention in the past. For the last two years, the physical convention has been cancelled due to COVID and only Zoom interviews and such have taken place. It appears Shore Leave will be live in 2022 as long as nothing changes.

What does this mean?

Live guests and authors will appear and there will be the chance to talk with them, get pictures and autographs, and have a more normal con than has been possible for some time. 

Note: I had just pasted their photos into this post when the line-up changed. Denis Lawson and Jewel Staite will no longer be able to attend due to other commitments. But the Shore Leave folks have arranged for a few other actors to come instead (Summer Glau, Laz Alonso, and Jessie Usher)!

Here are the guests currently expected for Shore Leave 42:

The convention doesn't have a schedule yet, but more than 40 authors have stated they plan to attend. It's likely there will be many of the same panels as in the past, but as so much time has gone by since the last convention, I'm hoping for a few new and interesting ones.

As always, I plan to have a few pieces of artwork ready for the art show. I will also be giving away a few books. I'll have more on that at a later date.

Shore Leave 42 will take place at the Delta Hotels Baltimore Hunt Valley from July 15 - 17, 2022, but the website states that the room block for the convention is already sold out. So, if you're planning to go and don't have a reservation, you'll have to find rooms elsewhere.
