An afternoon with Anne McCaffrey:
grand master of science fiction
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to meet Science Fiction and Fantasy author Anne McCaffrey, the first woman ever to win a Hugo Award for writing science fiction in a male-dominated genre. Her first novel, Restoree, was written as a protest against the absurd and unrealistic portrayals of women in science-fiction novels in the 50's and early 60's. Anne's talents as a storyteller are best displayed, however, in the handling of broader themes and the worlds of her imagination, particularly in her Pern series (14 novels and counting) and in the The Ship Who Sang series. This beloved author has written dozens of best-selling novels with over twelve million in print and has received multiple awards for her work. She moved to Ireland in 1970 and has lived there ever since. She was named the 22 nd Grand Master of Science Fiction by the Science Fiction Writers of America this spring.

the Science fiction museum and Cascadia Con present
AUGUST 31st 5 – 7 PM
Robotech exploded onto syndicated television in 1985 and introduced an entire generation of viewers to anime; at the same time furthered the main stream acceptance of the Science Fiction Genre. Robotech represents an incredibly successful long-term group that crosses from the Science Fiction fan realm into the Anime Science Fiction realm. Robotech has maintained a loyal fan base over the last 20 years through TV syndication, the release of toys, comic books, novels, role playing games, home videos and next-generation console games. Harmony Gold is currently producing a new series in the Robotech Universe.
Join us as SFM and Cascadia Con collaborates to feature highlights of Robotech anime and the latest information on the upcoming sequal Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles. On hand at the presentation will be some of the top names from Harmony Gold. At the end of the show, Harmony Gold, as the producers of Robotech, will be awarded with a special plaque for their 20 years of Science Fiction Anime. Seating is expected to be very limited with heavy attendance, so we recommend that attending fans arrive early.
