Science Year in Review, with John Rennie

Dinner! Discussion! Science!

Join John Rennie for an ICON benefit dinner round-up of 2015’s newest discoveries and most impressive technologies and how and when we may see them impact our lives and the future of scientific research.

$45 Per Person
$42 Per Person by December 25

The donation includes a delicious dinner at Domenico’s restaurant in Levittown. As LI-CON members know, John is a fascinating speaker and this is a chance to have a good time, maybe learn something, and help support ICON Science Fiction. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and all money we receive will go to support our activities and expenses.

Help Bring Back MST3K

LI-CON fans really loved our riffing tribute to Mystery Science Theater 3000. The original inspired and entertained millions for years.

Now show creator Joel Hodgson is bringing it back!

The “Bring Back MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000” KickStarter has already reached 70% of its goal–enough to have already funded 6 new episodes. It has a real chance of being the most successful movie/TV KickStarter ever!

I’m in. I’ve invested a bit of my money to get one of my favorite shows ever back on the air.

Now it’s your turn. Help us out, here. If we reach the 12-episode goal, there’s an excellent chance that a network will pick up the show again.


Thanks to all our members, and what’s next

First, let me thank everyone who came to LI-CON. I hope (and believe) that you all had a good time.

If you couldn’t make Paul Levinson’s concert, you can still hear him! Just watch:

I’d love to announce our next convention, but we won’t actually have any firm plans until at least late September.

Would you like to become part of the action? ICON, our parent company, is always looking for help. If you feel that you can spend some time working on our events–not just LI-CON, but anything that we do–please email

Coming next week: I finally announce the winner of the free Medieval Times passes.
