Capricon Book and Food Drives


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.

Phandemonium Book Club – “Lion’s Blood”


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:

1740 Sherman Ave
Evanston, IL

Have a bite to eat and discuss an alternate future. What a great way to spend an evening!

Tadao Tomomatsu will be unable to attend Capricon 34


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.
