Welcome to Eternity. Capricon 43’s theme is The Afterlife, and our program explores the many answers to the question “What does it mean when Death is the beginning of the story?” 

In addition to exploring our theme, we’ve got panels related to general SFF topics, media, comics, art, writing, science, and other fannish interests. A few of the things we’re most excited about are below, but be sure to check out for the full schedule. 

Are you a writer? Check out our Writers’ Room, with a weekend-long schedule full of panels and workshops.
