LibertyCon returns with a stellar lineup of guests
This weekend marks the return of one of the longest-running literary science fiction conventions in the region with the 27th hosting of the LibertyCon convention.
The literary gathering kicks off Friday afternoon at the Chattanooga Choo Choo, featuring noted authors Jody Lynn Nye, John Ringo, David Drake and Sarah Hoyt, among several dozen others scheduled to appear.
Special guests include National Geographic Channel’s “Rocket City Rednecks” star Dr. Travis Taylor, artists Kurt Miller and David Cherry, and even a true-blue rocket scientist, NASA’s own Les Johnson.
“Between attendees and professionals, we will have almost 700 people,” said convention organizer Brandy Spraker. Among the many activities and events over the weekend, noted highlights include panel discussions on everything from the messiest ways to kill zombies to how to protect the planet from asteroid armageddon.
Other highlights inludes The Atlanta Radio Theater Company live radio-style presentation of Thomas E. Fuller’s “The Adventures of Dash Cardigan”, a Mad Scientist Roundtable, and a full dealers room and art show to find that perfect must-have item or piece of art.
