THIS WEEKEND: DETCON1 North American SciFi Con @ Marriott RenCen

With the explosion of scifi/pop culture/fandom cons, I'm always excited to see a new brand in Detroit. We've already discovered that the Marriott RenCen is a fantastic place for a con, with its circular floors leading every visitor right back around to something awesome. Check out DETCON1's programming guide to find something for every kind of interest, from film to craft to fiction to gaming, even a Tigers game...and for every age group.
