Necronomicon 2014: Oct 3rd, 4th & 5th, Tampa, Florida
It’s that time of year again for Necronomicon! This popular Tampa Bay Area fan convention has been drawing crowds for over 30 years. Did you get that? Over. 30. Years! So, what tickles your wild and crazy? Horror? Sci-Fi? Fantasy? Steampunk? Anime? Gaming? RPG? Cos Play? Those and so much more happens under the wide and wonderful canopy that is Necronomicon.
Kathy is thrilled to be invited back as a guest author among stellar bestsellers like “Ring of Fire” co-author Eric Flint, who is this year’s Necronomicon Guest of Honor, Star Wars author Timothy Zahn and “Eragon” author Christopher Paolini.
This year, the venue moves to the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay, a larger venue to better accommodate Necronomicon’s continually growing fan base. It’s a gorgeous location that’s convenient to just about anywhere in the greater Tampa Bay Area.
Kathy’s panels and events list is chock full, so she will have only one autographing slot on Saturday. In a few days, her signing and event schedules will be posted, but to give you a taste of what’s in store at Necronomicon, check this out:
1.) The return of the Hard Boiled Sci Fi Challenge: Super Egg Edition. Six authors square off in a hard boiled trivia challenge where only one victor can emerge. Contestants are eliminated Russian Roulette style, but with eggs instead of bullets. Miss a trivia question, egg meets head. But is it hard boiled or raw? If it’s hard boiled, the author survives to the next round. If it’s raw, the writer leaves with egg on face…literally!
2.) 50…count ’em…50 panels covering every imaginable topic of fandom.
3.) Of course, the ever popular Costume Contest followed by the Necronomi-Prom (this year’s theme: Game of Thrones).
If you have never been to Necronomicon, you are in for an unforgettable experience that is both classic and unique. And if you have been to Necronomicon…well, you’re already packing your bags in anticipation.
