The convention will host some of the major names in science fiction and fantasy, as well as offer many events for convention-goers – including panels, gaming, a vendors room and special activities for children. OryCon is sponsored by the Oregon Science Fiction Conventions, Inc.

“OryCon celebrates the joy we take in sharing our favorite books, movies and songs of speculative fiction,” says Lea Rush. “We emphasize the art and business of the written word, but we have panels on movies, digital media and costuming as well.” OryCon has several guests – representing all forms of media – in the science fiction and fantasy genres. Featured guests this year include the author of the best-selling Black Jewel series of books, Anne Bishop, world famous fantasy artist Larry Elmore, local writer Jay Lake, Tor Books Editor Liz Gorinsky, special musical guests Debs and Errol, and online digital media creator and writer of ‘The Gamers’, Matt Vancil.

Featured panels include discussion for the business of writing and publishing, costuming, comics, media, writing, art/artists, computers, technology, SF/Fantasy/Horror, and more. Additional entertainment will include the annual costume contest, various dances and get-togethers, multiple musical performances and more. ”The XCOR Spacecraft presentation will bring cutting-edge space exploration to the discussion floor.” says Ann Ezell, head of programming, “We’re also adding more children’s programming in the new OryKids program.”
