Sooner Con is right on top of us. It’s a fun little convention that has both cosplay and lots of writers for both Sci-Fi and Fantasy. Also there is tables of fan films. One of the things I really like about conventions is meeting dedicated fans. I like seeing my comic heroines like the Phoenix and movie heroes like Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter in cosplay.
This year the theme is Beyond Thunderdome. So Post-apocalyptic madness the inspiration.Guests are Oklahoma author C.J. Cherryh as guest of honor, writers workshop leader Tim Powers, artist and comic illustrator Mark Texeira .So book wise it is scifi and steam punk.Along with Mark Texeira who does comic ilistrations.
Als, I wanted to do a shameless plug for a wounderful place to stay if you do not choose the hotel used by the con. i would like to recommend The Art Hoouse on 43rd. It is a B-n-B run by fellow Whovians Cyn and Pete Burton. you can find their Airbnb page https://www.airbnb.com/users/show/10718" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">here and face book https://www.facebook.com/arthouseon43rd" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">here.
