ConTemporal | Sheraton Chapel Hill Hotel | Special Events | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: June 21-24 2012
Price: $10-45

In the last few years, the Triangle has seen an increased presence of sci-fi/fantasy-related events and to that I say huzzah! The latest, ConTemporal, features plenty of pirates and steampunk (and probably steampunk pirates), with sword demonstrations, dealers and guests ranging from webcomic sensations Phil and Katja Foglio of Girl Genius fame to veteran author Lee Martindale to songster Tom Smith. Check the Indy's Artery blog for an interview with literary guest of honor Cherie Priest, whose novel Boneshaker manages to combine steampunk, alternate history and zombies. That's powerful fiction right there. The event runs through Sunday; weekend passes are $45 for adults and $20 for youths, with $5 discounts for students and military. —Zack Smith
