We’re happy to announce a unique event: Cards Against LI-CON. Play an uncensored, uninhibited game of the insanely popular (and insane!) game, using unique cards created specifically for this special event. We’ll have cards based on our guests and staff, and players can receive these one-of-a-kind cards and decks as prizes, signed by the people they’re about. This tournament will be the centerpiece of our overnight gaming. That’s right, you can play games continuously from Saturday morning through the con ending on Sunday evening. But please stop a few times to do stuff like eat, shower, and such.
More exciting gaming news soon!
ICON Science Fiction’s fund-raising campaign via Indiegogo has ended.
We did not raise the targeted amount. I want to emphasize two things:
- LI-CON is a go. We are holding the event in March.
- I-CON the event has not been abandoned. It just won’t happen in June. We will continue to work on it and when it happens, anyone who purchased a membership as part of the campaign is still a member.
For more details see the announcement.
So how can you get LI-CON memberships now? Via the LI-CON online store, which you can find by clicking the Register for LI-CON link at the top of this very window.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to the campaign.

Interview conducted by Carl Fink
I first met Jody Lynn Nye at I-CON, where she and her husband Bill Fawcett were appearing. Like so many accomplished writers, both of them were remarkably down-to-earth and friendly and I really enjoyed talking to them, both there and at another convention. (Conventions are great places to have conversations—one among me, Jody, Bill and Mike Resnick I will probably remember for the rest of my life.) I still enjoy talking to both of them, and that made them naturals to invite to the first convention I am in charge of. I asked Jody to sit for an email interview as a way to introduce her to any fans who might not know her.
LI-CON: Hi, Jody. To start with, have you every done a job besides professional writing? Continue reading A Conversation With Jody Lynn Nye, Part 1
