ConGlomeration, Louisville's only multimedia sci-fi and fantasy convention run for fans, by fans is 50 uninterrupted hours of family-friendly fandom. ConGlomeration 2019 will be held Easter Weekend, April 19 to 21, 2019, at the Crowne Plaza Louisville Hotel.
At ConGlomeration, the fan experience is about more than spending hundreds of dollars to stand in line for hours with only a generic celebrity photo and autograph to show for it. Members describe ConGlomeration as a geek family reunion.
Meet Star Wars Super-Author Timothy Zahn
Legendary Star Wars novelist and sci-fi super-author Timothy Zahn will be the 2019 Author Guest of Honor. In some circles Tim is known as “the man who saved Star Wars.” His Thrawn Trilogy — which introduced the infamous villain Grand Admiral Thrawn to Star Wars canon, as well the Imperial capital planet of Coruscant, and the assassin-turned-hero Mara Jade — kickstarted widespread interest in the EU in 1991. Since then, Tim has published over forty novels, nearly ninety short stories and novelettes, and four collections of short fiction.
Meet D&D and Magic Illustrator Steve Prescott
Acclaimed game illustrator Steve Prescott will be the 2019 Artist Guest of Honor. Steve is one of the most recognizable and influential RPG artists of the last 20 years, with his unmistakable style appearing in games and sourcebooks since 1995. Steve has developed illustrations and designs for White Wolf Games, FASA, Paizo, Blizzard, Copenhagen Creators, Hasbro, Animal Planet, and most notably for Wizards of the Coast where he has contributed heavily to both Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering.
