Part of the process of learning is celebrating accomplishments and sometimes we just want to have fun! As such, Fyrecon will be hosting various events throughout the three days. Events will be added as they are confirmed.
The 2018 schedule is under development. In the meantime, here’s what we offered last year.

Join author Kevin L. Nielson for his retro book launch and the exclusive launch of his novelization of the movie, Mythica . Kevin has been so busy writing he hasn’t been able to do a book launch, so we’re celebrating his books of the past year, as well as his new book, Mythica, which will not be available until fall.
[accordion-item title=”Scott Tarbet’s Book Launch (click to view)”]
Fyrecon is excited to host Scott Tarbet’s book launch, Dragon Moon. Details will be posted as they are confirmed.
A new space race explodes into violence when China sets its sights on the Moon. The aim: seize the ultimate high ground. When a Chinese-American spy brings word out of Beijing, she is assigned to help an unlikely team of Navy SEALs and Russian Spetsnaz special operators to deal with this new threat. The cost of failure: worldwide Chinese empire.
Dragon Moon weaves together the stories of the special operators, the ultra-ambitious Chinese officer who has created this new lunar weapon, and a young asteroid hunter who stumbles on the truth.
