Marscon may not be the subject of Geek Culture, but it is near and dear to my heart. I will be hosting a book release party at this year’s Marscon in the Egyptian Antiquities of Mystery party room on Friday, March 4, from 8 to 10 p.m. There will be refreshments and, of course, books. You will have to register for the con to attend, but it will be well worth it. While much smaller than CONvergence, Marscon has the advantage of being more intimate. It has some excellent panels, including a robust costume track and a well-known dementia track (think Dr. Demento).
Interested? Marscon will be held March 4-6, 2016, at the Hilton Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport/Mall of America, 3800 American Blvd. E., Bloomington, Minnesota. The party is only on March 4; on Saturday, March 5, the Egyptian Antiquities of Mystery room (room 1121) will be used for tea duelling during the afternoon and an Egyptian-themed party starting at 9 p.m.
