Alda reminds us that after all the Comicon buzz, there is a very different convention approaching on July 25-28 in Nashville, Tennessee. “Mythcon might not be as much in the pop-culture as comic-con, but it is and has been one of the best scholarly conferences dedicated to the fantasy world and works of Tolkien and Lewis,” he says. TORN staffers Quickbeam and Tehanu, who attended in 2000, would be quick to agree with that.
