“Invasion!” might sound a little threatening as a theme — Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Space Invaders — but it can also be a positive thing. British invasion, anyone? For our eleventh MarsCon, fans of science fiction and fantasy will be invading Bloomington’s Holiday Inn Select from March 6-8, 2009. We’ll spend three (or more) days setting up shop and celebrating the books, television, movies, comics, music, and science that we all love so much. There will be panels, displays, how-to guides, contests, demonstrations, concerts, and an unbelievable assortment of parties. And maybe, hopefully, there will be mini-invasions between fannish groups. Klingons watching an up-and-coming anime show. Authors seeing their characters brought to life by costumers. Musicians learning how to make cool sci-fi props. At this year’s convention, we invite everyone to get a little chocolate in their peanut butter — the taste may surprise you.
