The North American Discworld Convention is a fan-run convention designed to celebrate Terry Pratchett's long-running, bestselling, hilarious, insightful (etc.,etc. – we can keep going all day) series of satirical fantasy novels. The UK has been holding Discworld Conventions regularly since 1996, and more recently there have been Discworld Conventions in Australia and Germany, but this will be the first one held in North America. Scheduled for Phoenix, Arizona over Labor Day Weekend, 2009 (Sept 4-7, and maybe September 3 as well – stay tuned!), the convention is delighted to welcome Guest of Honor Terry Pratchett, as well as other guests with connections to Terry and/or Discworld. We chose 2009 to avoid conflict with the UK Discworld conventions that take place during even-numbered years – which makes us officially odd!
