Once upon a time, Wilson Cruz was invited to Farpoint Convention and happily accepted. However, his office misread the dates for Farpoint and did not realize that our con and the Trek Cruise were the same weekend. Wilson had booked the Trek Cruise quite awhile ago. So with many apologies, Wilson will be unable to attend Farpoint Convention next month and will instead be joining us in 2023.
We have a verbal acceptance from a replacement guest but are waiting for the signed contract before announcing their name. Hold tight.

Hot on the heels of announcing Wilson Cruz joining us at #FarpointCon2022, we are pleased to announce that our friend Timothy Zahn is making his return to join us too!
Timothy Zahn is an American writer of science fiction and fantasy. He is known best for his prolific collection of Star Wars books, chiefly the Thrawn series, and has published several other series of novels of his own original creation, in addition to many works of short fiction.
Zahn’s novella Cascade Point won the 1984 Hugo Award. He is the author of the Blackcollar trilogy and the Cobra series (eight novels so far), fourteen Star Wars expanded universe novels, including thirteen novels featuring Grand Admiral Thrawn: the Thrawn trilogy, the Hand of Thrawn duology, Outbound Flight, Choices of One, Thrawn, Thrawn: Alliances, Thrawn: Treason, and the Thrawn Ascendancy trilogy.
The Thrawn trilogy marked a revival in the fortunes of the Star Wars franchise, bringing it widespread attention for the first time in years; all three Thrawn trilogy novels made the New York TimesBest Seller List, and set the stage and tone for most of the franchise’s expanded universe content. Zahn also wrote the young adult Dragonback series and the popular Conquerors’ trilogy.
