Archon 40 

When: Sept. 30-Oct. 2, 12 p.m. 2016
Price: $8-$45
Archon is St. Louis' longest-running science fiction and fantasy convention. When it started 40 years ago, the guest of honor was George R.R. Martin, who was then best-known for his science fiction short stories. How times have changed. GRRM is still slogging his way through A Song of Ice and Fire, while Archon still produces a new convention every fall like clockwork. This year's Archon takes place Friday through Sunday (September 30 to October 2) at the Gateway Center (1 Gateway Drive, Collinsville, Illinois; The first panel starts at noon on Friday and the last gaming session ends at 5 p.m. Sunday. In between those two points in time will come cosplay, filking (songs about science fiction/fantasy performed by the fans) and three days worth of panel discussions and seminars on everything from the legacy of Star Trek to cosplay disasters. Single-day admission to Archon is $8 to $45, and weekend passes good for all three days are $75.
