Inconjunction Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention 2014 is being held on the east side of Indianapolis, this Fourth of July weekend! It’s an awesome local event celebrating all things within the speculative fiction realms. This year I’m attending as part of the Speculative Fiction Guild (SFG) and we’re hitting the con in a big way.
We’ll have a vendor’s booth with all of our titles, where I’ll be selling and autographing copies of my debut novel, The God Killers. Convention pricing is $15.
Also at the SFG booth: RJ Sullivan, Matthew Barron and Eric Garrison. Directly next to us is SFG member Crystal Leflar, who’s running her OWN vendor booth as event marketer for Nightscape Press, so check out their array of titles along with her own books.
The WONDERFUL folks who throw Inconjunction (the Circle of Janus) has the SFG hopping in panels this year and we’re glad for it!
This will be my second appearance at Inconjunction, first time with a novel to sell/promote and I’M VERY EXCITED to attend!

“In the year 2030, the technological singularity event encompassed the world. Man no longer controlled the evolving super-sciences. Seed A.I. groups began taking control of broad-based neural-nets and developing life forms.
Mankind tried integrating full techno-biological based Transhuman soldiers in an attempt to turn back the Singularity. The Transhuman armies rebelled against mankind and wanted to take over the world and re-shape society to reflect their values.
War erupted between the technology based, Transhumans and the United World Government and the seed A.I. nanite armies. The Great War of Transhumanity began and the world explodes and burns with technological based instruments of brutality. Humanity loses its soul. Five years of devastating war between the Humans, Transhumans and the ever- increasing Nanite Army of Fire began reducing society and technology to ashes and cinder.
Telecommunications and satellites fail and computers and the internet no longer hold the spark of life. The world is a dark, nightmare. Mankind’s numbers reduce and the world governments dissolve. Chaos was rampant and Mankind was no longer living at the top of the food chain.
By the year 2050, history was no longer recorded. The Nanite armies began eating themselves and the darkness slowly faded. The fires had reduced the Earth to a mere semblance of its former glory. It was in 2050 that I began to rebuild society. My first step was the city of New Southampton in what was left of England. I used technology of steam to usher in a new world and vision based on an age of civility. I knew that nanites would not thrive in a steam environment and I placed my labs deep down into the depths of shadow beneath the city that I held so dear. By the year 2060 my research center in the depths began development of a new power source. This new source would fuel my steam and my laws and slowly bring Mankind back to an age of Enlightenment. I was wrong. However well-intended my work was, it blew up like a volcano of Creeping Green radiation! The utopian steam-society I was creating was cast in a green-hued din. Mutants were now seen emerging from the recesses and strange stories emerge and urban legends of secrets that lay in the Nether-world of the Crater of Noxious Adversity. It is now 2075. A woman named Anne Eliza Wintersmith has declared herself Queen of New Southampton. She spreads fear with her Regulators of Discord. The Queen is ruthless and conniving. The Queen imprisons anyone that opposes her. The citizens cry out and beg for salvation. A group of heroes have heard these cries of anguish. I call them The Posthumans. They are a group that shall soon come together as heroes and right these wrongs and gain freedom for the oppressed. The Posthumans do not see this vision yet. They have not put on the mantle of heroes yet, but they have heard the calling. I wish that I could be there to see them Rise.”- Dr. M.E. Fulbright.

I am going to attempt to snag a photo-op with Stan “The Man” Lee, if any slots are left! I will also hope to catch a glimpse of other celebrities such as: William Shatner, Jay and Silent Bob, Gillian Andersen, John Barrowman & Michael Rooker to name a few!
I’m positive that Seventh Star Press will have a STRONG presence this year as in years past and the regional author tract will include a full weekend of exciting and informative panels, with plenty of opportunities to learn how authors work their mojo and hopefully we can inspire future authors to use the tools we impart and wisdom we’ve gained to pursue their own dreams.
FYI, Louisville, KY is only a 2.5 hour drive from Indianapolis, IN and I’d love to see you there, so come out to meet me, purchase an autographed copy of The God Killers and enjoy a weekend filled with FUN & EXCITEMENT!!!
