Thank you to everyone who suggested program ideas. We have ideas! Now we need to decide on which ones, and who would like to speak on them. Please go to the Program Survey page and fill out the survey form. There are two sections, one where you vote for the topics you'd like to see, and another for the ones you could be on as a panelist or moderator.

Potlatch 23 Book of Honor voting will close at the end of the day on Saturday, January 4th (Pacific Time). On Sunday the 5th I will tabulate the votes and announce the Book of Honor.

The Book of Honor is chosen by Potlatch members. You might ask, "How do I become a member?" It's easy, and membership is still only $50.

I would like to encourage you to read a nominated work, or re-read it if you haven’t read it recently. Post a comment with your impressions! Why would it make a good Potlatch Book of Honor? Or why not?

Potlatch 23, the small but perfectly formed literary speculative fiction convention, is coming to San Jose, California on February 21-23, 2014. It will take place at the remarkably attractive and handily central Sainte Claire Hotel in downtown San Jose. Our website is www.potlatch-sf.org.

Registration is now open! Potlatch 23 memberships are $40 through July 15th. Youth memberships are $25. Children (6 and under) are free. Join now to nominate the Book of Honor and participate in the discussion.

You may register online. You may also register by mail. Download our registration form, fill that bad boy out and send it to Potlatch, P.O. Box 103, Mountain View, CA 94042 along with your check. Please make checks payable to Potlatch.

We will be publishing a restaurant guide to the area, so if you have a favorite restaurant in San Jose, let us know!

Want to keep up with us on social media? We have a lovely Facebook page. We're on Twitter as @potlatch23, because we're incredibly literal like that! There are Potlatch communities on LiveJournal and DreamWidth. We haven't started a Tumblr yet, fandom is a bit shy about being photographed, and we love to comment. Leave us a message, start a thread to discuss possible Books of Honor, tweet your questions.

We hope you'll join right away and help us in the fully democratic process of choosing the annual Potlatch Book of Honor. Let your voice be heard! We're listening.

On-line registration is up and running!

You can go to the registration page and become a member of Potlatch 23. You can also order banquet tickets and Potlatch t-shirts.

We are extending the early rate of $40 through July 15th so people who want to join on-line still have a chance to do so at the early rate. This is a really good deal. Check it out.

I am pleased to announce that Potlatch 23 will be February 21–23, 2014 at the Sainte Claire Hotel in San Jose, California.

Memberships are available at a discounted rate of $40 through April 30th.

We are hoping to make Potlatch 23 the most inclusive Potlatch ever. The Book of Honor will be chosen by a vote of the members. The program will be based on suggestions by members (similar to WisCon), with the final decision made by a vote of the members.

For more details, check potlatch-sf.org.
