NotCon 2017

The cancellation of this year’s M2X event by the venue was a hard blow for us. The community support has been amazing these past few days, and we would like to thank everyone for their understanding. We haven’t been idle, and we were able to make arrangements with fantastic folks at the Radisson in Farmington Hills so we can still bring something special to you.

Several guests will still be joining us, including Jon St. John and David Eddings, and more to be announced. There will be panels and autograph sessions, cosplay photographers (and all of the cosplay gatherings are, of course, invited), and more. LOTS of details to come.

Oh, one last thing. All of our daytime festivities are totally free. And if you’re looking for a hotel to crash at, the Radisson has offered us some rooms at a crazy low rate. So come on down, you know where the party is at.

She Kills Monsters – April

She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen
A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
