There are some good science fiction conventions on the horizon. One of them will be held right here in Riverside, California, where I live. The annual Eaton Conference is slated for May 16 to May 18.

Authors Frederik Pohl, Greg Bear, Gregory Benford, David Brin, Ben Bova, Howard V. Hendrix, Geoffrey A. Landis, and Kim Stanley Robinson will be here in Riverside.

A teleconference from Sri Lanka with Sir Arthur C. Clarke is scheduled.

The guest of honor is author Ray Bradbury. He was recently named a Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters by the Ambassador of France to the United States. French director Francois Truffaut filmed an adaptation of Bradbury’s classic novel Fahrenheit 451 in 1966.

The University of California at Riverside’s Eaton Collection is the largest public collection of written sci-fi in the world.
