Upcoming Cons -- Living in the Weird, Weird West -- SteamCon 2010 and Wild West Con 2011

     "This year’s steamposium will highlight the Weird Weird West or American steampunk, if you will. Imagine the age of steam on the wild frontier. You are invited to explore with us the world of roughriders on mechanical horses, mad inventors, mystical Indian shamans, and mighty steam locomotives. Picture airships instead of stagecoaches, and the precision of robotic sharp shooters. If western steampunk doesn’t appeal, there will still be lots of classic steampunk to partake of as well."

     The events, merchants, art, and other aspects seem to be in the planning stages.  Guest stars will include Jake von Slatt (steampunk maker extraordinaire), James Blaylock (author of Homunculus), and Shane Hensley (creator of the MMORPG City of Heroes/Villains).

Registration is now open. The price for one adult is $45 until November 7th.
