This looks like a smaller show than the ones I've been at recently, but it also looks like the cons I loved so much when I was a kid: there's a movie room, where they're screening everything from classic episodes of Star Trek to classic horror films like The Hills Have Eyes. There are some very cool guests, a few panels (I'm on a panel called Star Trek through the years on Saturday), gaming, and a costume contest.
The Details! Let me show you them:
I'll be there Saturday and Sunday (the show switches gears slightly on Sunday and becomes a comic convention) with the usual assortment of books and pictures for people who want them. This will be the last chance to get 2008's chapbook, Sunken Treasure, if you care about that sort of thing. I think there are about 50 left after PAX.
Friday and Saturday, September 26-27

Unlike shows that seem designed to take as much of your money while giving you as little as possible in return, this looks like a bunch of geeks getting together to goof off for the weekend, which is what conventions are supposed to be about. It's cheap, too! If you come on Saturday only, it's $10. If you come for Friday and Saturday, it's just $15. That's less than you'd pay for some jerk's totally awesome book, you know.
