Wanted: Someone to go back in time with Capricious. This is not a joke. Would you like to lend a hand in making Capricon happen? Are you interested in finding out what happens behind the scenes at a con?
The first step in doing either is simple, volunteer to be a gopher. There are many different jobs that need to be done from the Wednesday before Capricon starts all the way through to Sunday evening after closing ceremonies. Helping out can be quick and easy. If you have an hour, we would love to have you swing by the coat check by the dealer’s room and give us a hand.

Don’t forget that Capricon is conducting a food drive and a book drive throughout the weekend.
You can bring non-perishable foods to the Information Desk and we’ll donate them (as well as any leftover ConSuite food) to local food pantries.
The Info Desk will also be accepting donations of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror novels as part of the Science Fiction Outreach Project. These books will be passed out at comic book conventions to promote literacy, and help grow the genre fan base. We are particularly looking for young adult and children’s genre books.
As a prelude to the 2014 NASFiC, Detcon1, we’ll be reading “Lion’s Blood” by its Author GoH, Steven Barnes.
We’ll be discussing the book on March 23 at 7:00pm at:
Cosi 1740 Sherman Ave Evanston, IL
Have a bite to eat and discuss an alternate future. What a great way to spend an evening!

It is with great disappointment that Tadao regrettably will be unable to attend Capricon 34 in person as we had hoped. Although Mr. Tomomatsu would love to be with us, he has to make his family a top priority and we cannot agree more.
However, Tadao will be able to attend a panel via Skype and we do look forward to being able to have him with us, even if it is only electronically.
