From the same great folks that brought us LI Who and LI Quest, Be sure to check out LI Geek. With guests from fan favorites like Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Star Trek, The Hobbit, Red Dwarf, Guardians of the Galaxy, and more, there is sure to be something for everyone. Also with plenty of programming, cosplay and masquerade, we can’t wait! Be sure to check it out, and stop by the LI-CON table to say hi!
You already know you’re coming to LI-CON 2. Why not save yourself a few bucks and sign up before the prices increase May 1?
Saturday night, come try your luck with our guests, as the audience battles to see who is the most horrible person.
Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Each round, one guest asks a question from a Black Card, and participants in the audience answer with their funniest White Card. Play for prizes, play for keeps! Watch our guests struggle for the title of “LI-CON’s most horrible person!”

If you have attended any science fiction conventions on the East Coast, or any World Science Fiction Conventions, you’ve seen and heard Erwin “Filthy Pierre” Strauss. He’s there, somewhere, playing music to make waiting on line less painful (and just because he loves music), attending panels, providing freeby racks and message boards just because he wants to help out.
He’s also a writer, member of the Filk Hall of Fame, and all-around great person to have at a convention. Come listen to him (or even say “Hi”).
Note: our membership rates go up at the end of April. That’s two weeks! This is your chance to lock in the current rate by getting your membership today!
We’re delighted to have Roy back at LI-CON, and I know you are too. Say “Hi” to him in the Dealers Room, or attend the programming he will appear on, or admire his art in our new Art Show (more to come on the Art Show).
