Friday’s Highlight: “Life, the Universe, & Everything” Symposium by Diana Ault

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Today we have Diana Ault for a visit on my blog. She will tell us all about LTUE http://ning.it/xoTnKL

     Named after the clever sci-fi book by Douglas Adams, the Marion K. “Doc” Smith,  “Life, the Universe, & Everything” Science Fiction and Fantasy Symposium is in its 30th year, making it one of the largest and longest-running symposiums of its kind. (The whole title is probably the biggest mouthful too so let’s just call it LTUE.)

     What began as a small meeting of Brigham Young University speculative fiction enthusiasts in 1982, is now a full-on, three day, academic symposium for amateur and professional writers and artists.
Traditionally held on BYU campus, this year the symposium will be held at the Utah Valley UniversitySorensen Student Center Feb. 9 – 11, 2012.

For more information on the history of LTUE, please clickhere and here. (more…)

How do many authors get inspiration for their names? (more…)
