Tucson Sci-Fi Con

Hello, fellow fans. Welcome to TusCon 43, our 43rd annual Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror convention. Attendees of TusCon are among the most dedicated fans of science fiction, fantasy, and horror and many attendees are professional writers, film producers, artists, and reporters who keep others informed about the goings on in the industry.  Every year, dozens of professional writers, artists, editors, performers, and filmmakers attend the convention. We invite you to attend the convention, especially if you are a fan of reading, writing, gaming, and generally having fun. Besides, we have a Cookie Fairy in our ConSuite!

This year our Author Guest of Honor is George R.R. Martin, author of the international bestselling series of epic fantasy novels, A Song of Ice and Fire, adapted for HBO as “Game of Thrones."  With only a few hundred attendees, this is a nice intimate venue in which to celebrate this prolific author.  And drink tea with Madame Askew.
