I love fan conventions and try to go to as many as I can to get a dose of unreality for a few days and present a panel or two. Here is a list of the major cons within a few hours’ drive of San Antonio. Unless a city is specified, all take place in San Antonio.
I make no endorsements regarding the quality (or lack thereof) of these events; this list is for informational purposes.
