ARCHON 38

Gotta give it to this guy for cleverness! A great interpretation of one of he characters from Narnia.

St. Louis’ long-running science-fiction convention, Archon, recently convened for edition #38 this past week-end. As someone who attended Archon #1 way back when, it had been a few years since I last attended an edition of this popular fest. I’m happy to report it was more fun than ever.

There were all the trappings of current science-fiction gatherings: dealers, artists, authors, and lots and lots of cosplay participants. Attendees come to Archon not to buy things for their collections—they come to party and have fun. And from what I saw, everyone was doing that in big amounts.

A special Entertainment Funhouse shout-out to illustrator Paul Daly, Archon’s Artist Guest of Honor. Blogmeister Sam has known Mr. Daly for over 40 years and has seen his work continue to improve. Paul is involved in all sorts of media projects, and this honor for him was long-overdue.

Take a peek at this album of people and things from Archon #38, and make plans to attend #39 next year!
