charlaineharris200As we announced back in February, Charlaine Harris will be among the special guests at Atlanta’s annual Dragon*Con, Sept. 4-7. This convention will feature some of the sci-fi/fantasy world’s favorite writers, actors, artists and performers.

This year, the event welcomes more than 500 guests who make Dragon*Con a geek paradise. In addition to Charlaine for all the “True Blood” fans, Patrick Stewart, William Shatner, Peter Facinelli, Julie Benz, Felicia Day and the cast of Battlestar Galactica will also be making appearances.

Other highlights of the weekend include the costumed parade through the streets of Atlanta on Saturday morning and an organized group dance that will try to break the Guinness World Book of Records for most people dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”

The convention is spread out over four hotels in downtown Atlanta: the Marriott Marquis, the Hyatt Regency, the Hilton and the Sheraton. Ticket costs vary based on where you buy them and which days you want to attend. A full four-day membership is $90 online for a limited time. After that, four-day passes are $100 at the door or you can purchase tickets for specific days ranging in price from $25-$75. Check the official Dragon*Con Web site for the full list of guests. Schedules will be made available on Aug. 24.
