KCUR 89.3

Even if you're not a fan of science fiction, you've probably heard of George R.R. Martin. (Does Game of Thrones ring a bell?) Melinda M. Snodgrass is no slouch herself, having written and edited for Star Trek: The Next Generation. Together, they edit a book series called Wild Cards, which could soon be adapted for television.

George R.R. Martin plans to attend Worldcon’s MidAmeriCon II, a sci-fi and fantasy convention that runs through August 21 at Bartle Hall. For ticketing information, visit

Martin, Melinda M. Snodgrass and several contributors to the 'Wild Cards' series will attend a signing at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown at 5 p.m. on Friday, August 19. For more information, go to
