I asked this question on Lunacon's official Facebook already, but I figured I have a high quality hive mind here and might as well take advantage of it. :)

We're gearing up for this year's Lunacon. Last year I added a couple of hundred new names to the invite database, but there's still more work to do. So if there's an author, editor, agent, artist, scientist, crafter, costumer, fan, LARPer, dancer, or other geek of coolness that you haven't seen at Lunacon and would like to, please scoot a nomination my way, here or at programming (at) lunacon (dot) org. 

(Bonus points if they're either within easy traveling distance of the NYC area or have some reason to schlep here in March.)

We're doing the active track again this year, so teachers of yoga, dancing, sword fighting, poi spinning, or any other physical activity likely to appeal to con attendees are also very welcome.

If it's not obvious, add a note about what they do, please. A sentence or a URL is plenty. If you have contact info, nifty; if not, no worries, send the name anyway and I'll Google. :)

Hmm. Since you mentioned swordfighting...what about the Maestri Ramon and Jeanette Acosta Martinez? World renouned experts in classical and historical swordsmanship, they're very personable--and also live in the NYC area (and teach in Chinatown). (also, RM, drcpunk, and I have studied there at various points).

Although one of their instructors, Jared Kirby ( might also be interesting -- as he's not only studied/teaches historical and classical fencing; he's also an accomplished fight choreographer (and teacher of same) and the editor of several important translations of historical fighting manuals.
