Hey guys,  some really cool early announcements to the guest list.

Some of my notable favorites:

Brom: Dark fantasy artist (and probably my favorite in the genre)
Ricky Whittle:  Lincoln(from The 100) and Shadow Moon(from American Gods)
John Barrowman:  Needs no introduction

As they're announced, I encourage everyone else to post the guests you're excited about seeing.

Basically every single actor from Lost Girl is on the guestlist... I could go for a revisit of the show!

While I have friends that basically live in the Urban Fantasy track I usually only make 1 panel a year if I go at all. The announcement though that Ilona Andrews will be there this year has me very excited.  I've told my husband to prepare himself :P  Hopefully I'll get the opportunity to meet them (husband/wife writing duo for anyone unfamiliar with their work) and maybe get a book signed.

Is it just me or did they save the majority of the best guest announcements until last minute this year? SO many good guests, I might actually need to meet some this year(Nick Frost OMG...)

My guess is they want to avoid as many last minute cancellations as possible so they waited until they were a lock. Lena Headly cancelled last minute after being confirmed for almost the whole year and people through a fit.

I remember William Shatner (Star Trek) was rumored to appear at DCon 2009 and his confirmation was right before the con. And he packed them in every day.
But the late cancellation thing is understandable.
