TusCon 40 fans are heading to Tucson, Arizona this weekend November 8 through November 10, 2013 for the long awaited Sci Fi, Fantasy and Horror convention.
The author guest of honor this year is bestseller Juliet Blackwell. Their artist guest of honor is Jessica Feinberg. There also musical guests, the Bedlam Bards, writer/director John Alan Simon and Geoff Notkin of the Meteorite Men. Ed Bryant returns as the toastmaster. There will be over 40 other authors and artists will be in attendance too, so check the TusCon website or Facebook for the latest information.
TusCon is proud to present the Arizona Film Premiere of “Radio Free Albemuth”--an indie film based on the novel by Philip K. Dick of the same title. “Radio Free Albemuth” is PKD’s most autobiographical novel, and the author wrote himself in as a character in the story. Writer/director John Alan Simon will be in attendance.

The Masquerade Revival will continue with costumes from all genres and skill levels accepted. Registration forms are available on the TusCon website or at the convention.
The Anime room is once again going to be available during the convention. TusCon is working to get a good list of new and old shows and movies for your enjoyment.
Be sure and visit the Dealer’s Room where you will find new books, used books, T-shirts, jewelry, collectibles, and much more! The Dealer’s Room always promises tons of cool gifts for family and friends, or a well-deserved gift for you.
Wolf & Fred, The Video Room Guys, host the largest round-the-clock genre video room featuring sci-fi, horror, fantasy, action, Asian and even quite a bit of very eclectic cult selections from the beginning of film to the present.
The art show is a mainstay with TusCon, and this year they are adding an Artist Alley. The Artist Alley is a juried show of artists who create in the comic book or genre art fields. You can meet the artist and maybe even see them at work. This year’s art auction will be silent.
The Short Film Screening event provides filmmakers with the opportunity to screen their short form in front of a live audience.
There will be lots of computer gaming. The Pershing/Mission rooms will be the site of TusLAN, The Best Little Computer Gaming LAN Party in Arizona. TusLAN will include games like Unreal Tournament, Team Fortress, and Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator. For a membership discount, pre-register to bring your own computer.
