A couple of interesting things going on this weekend:
- This weekend (Oct 13-14) is Sci-Fi & Fantasy Literary Weekend at the Carolina Renaissance Festival in Huntersville, NC (a bit northeast of Charlotte, between I-77 and I-85). Among other authors involved, Charlotte epic fantasy author Gail Z. Martin and adventure fantasy author Misty Massey will be participating. There’s also a costume contest and other activities.
- Meanwhile in Durham, on Sunday newly opened Atomic Empire (formerly Sci-Fi Genre) hosts 2012’s North Carolina State Championship Magic (the Gathering) Tournament. Registration opens at 9:00 a.m. and the first round begins at 10:00 a.m.
