As this site continues to grow and improve, we hope to add more detailed pages for both of our Andromeda conventions, including photos from each event. One interesting note -- we held a Writing Contest in association with Andromeda One, for both Adult and Student writers. The top five Student writers' works were gathered into a "fanzine", and all of these writers were given free one-day passes to the convention, in order to allow them to attend a ceremony for the announcement of the overall winner. The winner? A young Brandon Sanderson, at that time a high school student, but later to become a best-selling fantasy writer -- author of the Mistborn series, Elantris and the author chosen to finish Robert Jordan's final, uncompleted volume in his Wheel of Time series. Can we pick 'em or what? Read Brandon's recollections of the event in his blog (and read the winning story, now posted on his website).
