OLD SCHOOL CON: Back in the day, before Comic Cons ruled the land, there were science fiction conventions, like MidSouthCon. From its beginning in 1982, it is about to celebrate MidSouthCon 33 at the Hilton Memphis, 939 Ridgelake Boulevard. The convention will run Friday to Sunday, March 20 to 22, 2015, with Author Guest of Honor Cory Doctorow. It is so well-established that it's got its own Wikipedia page. There will be an art show, auctions, and a masquerade with multiple age categories. (Masquerades are what they were called before the word "cosplay" came into common usage.)
