Multiverse, a brand-new convention for fans of science fiction, fantasy, horror, comics, furry culture, and more, will hold its debut event from October 18th to October 20th in Atlanta, GA.
The convention, located at the Hilton Atlanta Airport, will bring together fans, authors, artists, and other creators, all of whom share a common passion—genre fiction. Attendees can expect sci-fi, fantasy, and horror media, tabletop role-playing games, cosplay, and other beloved staples of “geekery” to feature heavily at Multiverse.
“Panel discussions, a fursuit festival, an art gallery, a gaming hall, and even a charity auction for the nonprofit RAICES—it’s going to be so much fun, truly,” says convention chair Allie Charlesworth. “Whether you love Game of Thrones or Black Panther, the movie Get Out or Dungeons and Dragons or even My Little Pony, this is absolutely your con.”
Amazon.com has entries for two new paperback novels published by Wizards of the Coast in the post-apocalyptic adventure-comedy D&D series "Gamma World" — a setting where "thousands of possible universes all condensed into a single reality".
In "Sooner Dead" by Mel Odom, published in February: "A bio-engineered super-soldier named Hella and her mutant buffalo sidekick Stampede clash with armadillo bikers and inter-dimensional mutants across the ragged landscape of Gamma-Oklahoma."
In "Red Sails in the Fallout" by Paul Kidd, to be published in July, two desert explorers named Shaani and Xoota – who seem from the cover picture to be anthropomorphic wallabies – "are followed home by a swarm of empathic earwigs."
