Writer Guest of Honor at Another Anime Con. (Radisson Hotel Manchester, 700 Elm Street, Manchester, New Hampshire, 03101, 603-206-4109). This is from their website: Another Anime Convention is run by people who love Japanese culture especially Japanese animation located at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester, NH. It is a place for fans to gather in New Hampshire for a three day convention to enjoy events, special guest's and other media that celebrate aspects of Japanese culture. While our focus of the convention is Japanese animation, we also expand to other aspects of fandoms such as steampunk, science fiction and internet media. We offer panels, workshop's, anime screenings, a masquerade (skits and performances to show off costumes) a dance, karaoke, game shows, formal dance, AMV room, video games and much more.
