CopperCon is going back to its roots.

The long-running Phoenix convention focusing on sci-fi and fantasy literature, art and science, and presented by the Central Arizona Speculative Fiction Society (CASFS), will take up the moniker FANtasm when it takes place Aug. 22-24 at Avondale’s Hilton Garden Inn.

Phoenix sci-fi, fantasy and horror writer Gini Koch is the only guest listed so far on the FANtasm website.

Full memberships are priced at $30 through May 31, with ages 7-12 admitted at half price and up to two younger children admitted free with a paid adult membership. Convention rates at the Hilton are $89 per night for a room or $99 per night for a suite.

Last fall’s CopperCon: Revolution in Mesa was retooled as more of a “mini-comicon,” although organizers at the time noted that there were more guests of honor planned than any previous single CopperCon event. The media guest of honor, CW and Arrow artist Mike Grell, was replaced at the last minute by Zenescope Entertainment’s Raven Gregory.

We’ll bring you more guest announcements as we get them.

(Incidentally, Aug. 22 will be Nerdvana’s seventh birthday. Please celebrate by supporting an Arizona fandom institution like CopperCon!)
