A while back after I posted about CopperCon Revolution’s promotional screening of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, event chairman Michael Fett emailed to thank me and dropped the first official guest list for the Aug. 8-11 convention of the Central Arizona Speculative Fiction Society:
- L.E. Modesitt Jr. (pictured), a bestselling author of more than 60 novels, is the author guest of honor. His newest book, Antiagon Fire, is seventh in the Imager Portfolio series and due out in late May.
- Mike Grell, promotional artist for CW’s Arrow, is media guest of honor.
- Steve Leialoha, a comic book artist known for his inking and pencilling and work on Fables, is the artist guest of honor.
- Trina Robbins, comics artist and writer, is historian guest of honor
Fett says, “This is the most guests of honor CopperCon has ever brought in for one convention and were not done yet with bringing guests in.” So keep watching Nerdvana to find out more!

Main St. A full membership costs just $35 through April 30; ages 7-12 are admitted at half price and 6 and younger get in free (two per paid full membership).
