Imagine for a moment, if you will, that you jump forward in time more than three months, ending up in the Spring of next year.  You’ve joined fellow fans at the world premier of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in Wellington; you’ve had a great time at a local Line Party; you’ve seen the movie umpteen times; you even went to Los Angeles in February and had a spectacular time at An Unexpected Art Show and The One Expected Party with the folks from TORn.  But now, March is drawing to an end and it’s months until San Diego ComicCon.  What to do in the meantime?

Well, you could go to Germany and enjoy HobbitCon!  The folks who bring you RingCon each year are holding a special event in Bonn next March 30th and April 1st, to celebrate the Hobbit movie.  This event, called ‘There and Back Again – A Hobbit Convention’, will take place at the Hotel Maritim and will include Q&A, autograph and photo sessions.  Excitingly, a good number of the movie’s cast are already signed up to attend; you can read more details here.   Sounds like a fun way to spend a weekend!  With events like these to keep us all occupied, The Desolation of Smaug will be here before we know it!
