Dont Worry. You aren't the only Fan left on the planet.

We know it feels that way right now. We're all missing out on the panels, movie openings, book signings, masquerades, fan gatherings, and music concerts that we'd expected to be attending this spring and summer.

 

But your kind are still out here. 

 

We've got laptops, cellphones, and Internet connections, and we're going to bring you three days of amazing panels from some of the coolest authors, filmmakers, game designers, screenwriters, podcasters, futurists, cosplayers and other amazing thinkers and creators. It's all online and it's all FREE. And it's coming June 26th - 28th to a web browser near you.
