1. LepreCon 38 @ Tempe Mission Palms
No. This is not some sort of too-late St. Patrick's Day shindig. The 38th edition of LepreCon is a fantasy and sci-fi lit conference that boasts appearances from Animal House and Babylon 5 actor Stephen Furst, comic book artist Franchesco!, and Joe Haldeman, author of The Forever War. The geek-out begins Friday and continues through Sunday at Tempe Mission Palms. Admission ranges from $15 to $45.
