SoonerCon 27: Beyond the Veil

Join us for the 27th annual SoonerCon convention, the OKC metro’s original longest-running SF fandom and pop culture convention. The three-day event occurs June 22-24, 2018 at the Reed Conference Center and Sheraton Hotel in Midwest City.

This year’s convention theme is “Beyond the Veil” and the program

centers on worlds unseen, fantastic metropolises, wainscot societies, parallel realities, cryptids and possible futures. We’ll also delve into themes of exploration, imagination and observation; things are not always as they appear. Think urban fantasy, paranormal romance and horror genres. Plus, our usual mix of SF genre programming and activities all weekend!

SoonerCon 27’s special guests include:
Carrie Vaughn, Literary Guest of Honor
John Picacio, Artist Guest of Honor
Rachel Caine, Writers Workshop clinician
Selina Rosen, Toastmaster
THE Jerry Bennett, Featured Guest
Larry Nemecek, Featured Guest
…plus more featured guests to be announced
