CoastCon 34 is this weekend

CoastCon, the Mississippi Gulf Coast’s premier SF & F convention is holding its annual convention this weekend, 11 – 13th March, 2011 at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum, Biloxi MS. You have only a few days (or hours depending on when you read this) to come enjoy that “space cadet glow” that only is achieved when hundreds of die-hard fans get together in one spot.

This year’s theme is “zombies”, a theme that I generally only partake Sunday evening, when I am coned out at the end of a weekend. CoastCon even survived Hurricane Katrina, holding the convention off-venue in a small hotel. Fans came anyway because they needed a break from reality. We could have held that CoastCon with a zombie theme, but frankly we had just lived for months on the set a of a zombie holocaust movie and didn’t need to pretend. We didn’t call for brains, we wanted ice!

CoastCon is fan-run and each person who works at or for the convention does super duty in support of fandom. I'm going to report this fangirl video again, just because.
