Dragon Con started in 1987 and has always made it’s lair in Atlanta, Georgia. (Dragon Con’s Official History)From the beginning Dragon Con was a multiple genre and media convention, one where literature played a large part.
Over the years Dragon Con has grown and morphed mostly in response to fandom, we are a con for fans by fans after all. Once upon a time Dragon Con was small enough to be able to host Tracks dedicated to specific authors, but over the years we have grouped our literature into numerous Tracks.

The Fantasy Literature Track was born in 2014 when the Science Fiction and Fantasy Lit Track was separated into 2 Tracks. Fantasy Literature was forged from the Wheel of Time Track and the Worlds of Anne McCaffrey Track.
