Into a land of enchantment.

What’s Happening

Spooky Fandom Feud:

8 Audience members are split into 2 teams and compete in a haunted competition to see who has the best knowledge of popular scary or occult topics.

Whose Nightmare Is It Anyways

The blood-curdling improv show where you compete against your ghoulish friends to see who can scare up the most laughs from the audience! Compete in a series of games for a chance to play in the finale, and be crowned the evenings top entertainer!

Technically Correct

A special sneak preview of Vancouver’s newest upcoming game show! Audience members are drawn to take part in a competition of nerdy one-upmanship. Use your best trivia knowledge, bluffing skills, or outright blind guesses to impress and baffle the other players into submission.

Costume Contest

Come in a spooky outfit for a chance to win a prize in our costume contest! If you use body paint, please make sure it’s sealed so you don’t leave any on our chairs!

DOOR PRIZES!

We’ve collected some awesome prizes from here, there, and everywhere to feed your desire for arcane trinkets and talismans.

First Annual WCSFA Fundraiser Anthology – Call for Interior B&W Line Art

The West Coast Science Fiction Association was happy to recently announce a call for story submissions for the first annual WCSFA Fundraiser Anthology. The goal of these annual anthologies is to promote our member writers and artists and to raise funds for the WCSFA events we all love such as VCON, Northwest Fan Fest, and Nothing But Games!

The title of our inaugural anthology is Power: In the Hands of One, In the Hands of Many

We put out a call recently for story submissions, but now we’re looking to you for art! We’re currently looking for artists who would be interested in providing black and white line art based on the accepted stories.

Artists who would be interested in working on interior line drawings for the anthology should email Ellen Michelle at ellen [dot] michelle [at] wcsfa [dot] org by October 31 to indicate interest or for more details.

As this anthology is meant as a fundraiser for WCSFA, we will not be able to offer payment for stories. We are asking for first world non-exclusive rights.
